Published originally in German and translated into English by Polly Lawson, �In the Land of Merfolk� represents another European offering to the UK picture-book market made available through Floris Books.

Cheerfully combining poetry with expansive pastoral landscapes viewed at the eye-line of little people themselves, this book takes us on an imaginative and magical tour of the countryside depicted through the seasons. There is nothing incongruous in the fact that fairies, elves, mermaids and nymphs form a part of the populace on the pages and the loose descriptions of their actions and lifestyle leaves readers to piece together their own �take� on this world-view provided in miniature.

Daniela Drescher�s short book leaves one pensive in contemplation as to belief and the experiential evidence of the senses.
