In I Am a Meadow Mermaid, written by Kallie George and richly illustrated by Elly MacKay, a young girl living on a farm shares her vivid and lush imagination with readers.

Milla prances through the meadow as a mermaid and tells us: 'I see the sea in the sky, starfish in the stars, a whale's tail in a slip of the moon.' Illustrations of waves of wheat and 'coral-colored flowers' help the reader see her imaginary world.

There's even a 'stranded sailor' after a boy falls off his bike and enters her world of play. Milla makes a new friend at 'the end of a sea-swept day' in this delightful picture book that reflects the power of imagination.
