Mermaids both milk the cows and read the calves a bedtime story while water-pigs hunt for pearls in this beautiful, poetic tale illustrated with quiet magic
Under the blue-green fields of the Deep
Bleat the bubbly baas of webbed-feet sheep
Starfish twinkle in the ocean sky
Electric eels are comets zooming high.
The moon is the silver of a dolphin's skin
In the watery heaven
Where angelfish swim.
Dive under the sea to the underwater farmyard where dolphins dance among the sheep and cows, while a musical octopus plays. Ethereal and atmospheric illustrations perfectly capture the slow, lulling flow of the cows and other farmyard animals in this fantastically strange bedtime story.
