Do you suppose, way down deep, there are mermaids fast asleep? Written in a gentle, lyrical style that mirrors a lullaby, Mermaids Fast Asleep asks the question that young children have maybe asked before bedtime: Are there mermaids asleep in the sea? As our young human gazes into the water, her imagination wanders as she pictures the life that young mermaids live in the sea. Do they count fish instead of sheep? Do they breathe water like air? The book begins just at dusk as the sky is still Starbust oranges and pinks. And as the book moves on, the colours deepen to blues, greens, and purples until the sky is inky as night and a silvery moon magically glows. Paired with stunning art from Zoe Persico, Mermaids Fast Asleep is a must-have bedtime book for young mermaid fans.

There is a storyteller in almost every village in Africa. Telling stories is not her official job. By day she may be a Gogo, a teacher, a farmer or a seamstress. But at night, round the fire, she will sit surrounded by young children, old friends, neighbours and travellers. She will tell of how it was in the olden days, when the earth was young, when man was a hunter-gatherer, and when the animals roamed wild throughout the continent. The author spent several months hiking around the villages, towns, farms and deserts of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa, asking people who can't read or write to tell her their favourite stories. The result is this children's treasury of legends and fables, of witchdoctors and kingdoms of strange creatures and talking animals, which celebrates Africa and its ancient storytelling culture.
