We fell in love with this book, after finding it at the library. Such a great story about growing up, and yet still needing those who mean a lot to us. This would be a wonderful gift for someone you care about. Love this story and the beautiful illustrations.

A little girl discovers a tiny sea serpent tumbling from her bathtub faucet, and the two become fast friends. But their time together is short as the sea serpent quickly outgrows its quarters. The book reminds me a bit of Stephen Kellogg's The Mysterious Tadpole, though Chiens' illustrations (wonderful watercolors!) are quite different from Kellogg's crisp, detailed style. That said, I find myself wanting to re-read this "quiet", luminous book about friendship, and just admire the illustrations-- again and again.
