When a tourist stops for the night in the beautiful beach town of Bowen, in North Queensland, Australia, resting and enjoying her surroundings are the only expectations she can imagine. That evening, the young woman takes a picnic basket down to the water's edge for her dinner and meets a crab, who just so happens to pinch her bottom! As the woman daydreams about the ocean at her feet and relaxes to feel the environment around her, a beautiful mermaid suddenly pops out of the water and tells her about the wonderful world beneath the sea. What special message will the mermaid ask the young woman to pass on to the children who live on the land? Angel Wings, Faery Dust and Other Magical Things: A Story About Merpeople will delight and surprise readers as it weaves a breathtaking tale of the mysteries and gifts of the sea. Roxanne Roberts lives in Collinsville, North Queensland, Australia, where she teaches high school. By writing, she hopes to share the gifts of love and understanding with children. Ms. Roberts is working on the next book in the Angel Wings, Faery Dust and Other Magical Things series, the story of a young girl meeting her guardian angel for the first time and discovering the love and comfort from knowing he is there.

The book I guess is not just for children, even young adults or adults even may be interested and fascinated by the vivid drawings and the conversational tone the writer used. The language or words I mean, is not so much as for little ones..I think it’s meant to be read by adults to very young ones.
It’s simplicity makes it easier for children to grasp, especially talking about magical beings…merpeople as showcased in this one pique the interest of young minds…:)
There’s also a bit of humor to the story that would make a reader smile and said..”true”..
The ending was great especially when the storyteller said..But I did get a message from her to pass on to you. She said, “Tell your young ones to take care of the sea”.
I just wish though, that maybe she should elaborate this one out…or just write some words to better emphasize what the book is all about. Or maybe Ms. Roberts just want we, the not so young ones, to explain it ourselves to them, which I guess is much better.
All in all, the book is good and highly recommended for children or to those wanna-be-children.
