#ShareAStory ‘Nen and the Lonely Fisherman’

By Ian Eagleton Illustrated by James Mayhew

4 Paws & a lick = 5 *****

This book was bought to support #IndieBookShopWeek so firstly, let me say a big thank you to Kenilworth Books a beautiful Indie Book Shop that go above and beyond selling you a book. It was so elegantly wrapped and sealed with bright fun stickers. Plus, it came with some beautiful bookmarks so ~ Thank You. It was as if Christmas came early.

As I gently peel back the tissue paper the cover shone forth with sparkling stars and waves crested with silver. Then we spot Nen the Merman with his dark skin and golden tail, gazing longingly after Ernest in his little row boat. This book is a true treasure to behold.

A heartfelt story of a Merman and a Fisherman both missing something special in their lives. It is Nen’s sad soulful song that leads him to Ernest a kind caring fisherman who is a rescuer, a collector, a dreamer and creator.

Nen’s father has warned him not to go to the land where the humans are destroying his ocean, but Nen goes anyway. In his frustration Pelagios becomes angry and causes a raging storm which tips Ernest from his boat. Nen seeks him in the deep dark depths, is all lost? Will Nen be able to find the fisherman in time? And if so, will they be able to overcome adversity and have the friendship they long for?

Why not grab a copy for yourself, the story and illustrations flow seamlessly together in this wonderful magical tale. Very highly recommended, a classic in the making.
