From celebrated children's poet and author Sheree Fitch and early childhood educator and researcher Anne Hunt comes this illustrated compendium of Atlantic Canadian poetry and verse for young readers. Spanning centuries of work, from Milton Acorn to Kathleen Winter, and a broad thematic scope--from soft lullabies to silly, jiggly lyrics, poignant meditations on nature, loss, and love--over 100 poems from the region's best are sure to delight educators, parents, and young readers everywhere. With brilliant spot illustrations from acclaimed New Brunswick artist Lloyd Fitzgerald, Whispers of Mermaids and Wonderful Things is a feast for all senses.

She has over twenty-five books to her credit. Fitch's home base is the East Coast of Canada. Visit her at: shereefitch.com.
