Whether it's the value of cultivating an inner water garden or coping with crow's feet and fish tails, Margot offers advice and an enchanting way of hydrating your weary mermaid soul.Coy, sweetly mischievous, and a pinch sagacious, this is a book that, like a good glass of wine, can be enjoyed multiple times, sipped on, or downed in one reading.
Uses the metaphor of a landlocked mermaid to explore the situation of modern career women, in a resource that combines original artwork with lighthearted discussions of such topics as courtship, feminism, and self-esteem.
