The triple Caldecott winner David Wiesner brings his rich visual imagination and trademark artistry to the graphic novel format in a unique coming-of-age tale that begins underwater.

A young mermaid, called Fish Girl, in a boardwalk aquarium has a chance encounter with an ordinary girl. Their growing friendship inspires Fish Girl's longing for freedom, independence, and a life beyond the aquarium tank. Sparkling with humor and brilliantly visualized, Fish Girl's story will resonate with every young person facing the challenges and rewards of growing up.

DAVID WIESNER has won the Caldecott Medal three times-for Tuesday, The Three Pigs, and Flotsam-the second person in history to do so. He is also the recipient of two Caldecott Honors, for Free Fall and Mr. Wuffles. Internationally renowned for his visual storytelling, David has brought his artistry and his fascination with undersea life to a new genre, the graphic novel. He lives near Philadelphia with his family.

DONNA JO NAPOLI is a distinguished academic in the field of linguistics and teaches at Swarthmore College. She is also the author of more than eighty books for young readers.
