Glub glub…
Mermaid and Pirate cannot understand each other. They speak different languages and come from different worlds. But they’re quick to lend a hand, or a tail, when the sky grows stormy and waters get rough, and a friendship is born. Sometimes kindness and generosity speak louder than words.

Tracey Baptiste is the New York Times bestselling author of numerous middle-grade novels, including Minecraft: The Crash, The Jumbies series, and African Icons, and has made a splash with her picture books Looking for a Jumbie and Because Claudette.


Leisl Adams is a director, storyboard Artist and illustrator. She is the author and illustrator of the graphic novel Batter Royale, for young adults.

"Brimming with sweetness, the illustrations add a Disney aesthetic to this simple tale of the burgeoning bond between two very different friends...A winsome tale of unexpected friendship."——Kirkus Reviews
