The Mermaid’s Gift, by Claudia Cangilla McAdam

Posted on September 20, 2015 | in NEW BOOKS | by

The Mermaids GiftClaudia Cangilla McAdam’s newest picture story book, The Mermaid’s Gift, (illustrated by Traci Van Wagoner), has just been released by Pelican Publishing. Long ago, on the tiny Venetian island of Burano, the winter’s ice encircled the island, keeping the fishermen from the sea. The villagers were going hungry. In a retelling of an ancient legend, Gianni and Nicoletta, a courageous and compassionate young couple, want to help their starving neighbors. Gianni braves the icy sea, hoping to catch fish to feed the villagers, and Nicoletta holds vigil in the church. When a fierce storm capsizes his boat, Gianni nearly drowns until a mermaid rescues him and provides a gift that changes the future of everyone on the island.  View the book trailer or visit: www.ClaudiaMcAdam.com.
