A moving celebration of love.-- "KIRKUS REVIEWS, STARRED REVIEW"
Bright splashes of yellow jump out from a soothing seaside palette in this fantastical LGBTQ+ picture book. Though he loves the ocean, there is one thing Nen, a merman, cannot find even in its unfathomable depths: love. Every night, Nen sings his sorrow out over the sea; his song reaches a lonely fisherman, Ernest, who sets out in search of the singer. Together, they discover that nothing-not even a raging storm-can conquer love.-- "Foreward Reviews"
