Description:

 

 

Winner of the inaugural Polari Children’s and YA Prize 2022, praised for being “important and radical”.

 

A modern adaptation of a classic ‘little mermaid’ tale, Nen and the Lonely Fisherman tells the story of a merman’s search for true love, sending a song of hope across the sea while a lonely, caring young fisherman named Ernest hopes to find warmth in his heart. As the two meet, they feel a special connection, much to the dismay of Nen’s father Pelagios who creates a wild sea storm to protect his son and the ocean. Can Nen save Ernest?

 

This wonderful paperback book showcases a story of love in adversity, which serves as reminder to us all to care for people and planet.

 

PRAISE FOR NEN AND THE LONELY FISHERMAN:

 

“A lovely, gentle story of friendship and love between a merman, Nen, and Ernest, the fisherman of the title, with a conservationist theme rippling throughout. Mayhew's light-dappled, tender illustrations are the perfect foil for Eagleton's quiet, well chosen words.” - The Guardian
