Alice Hoffman's book Water Tales includes "Aquamarine" and "Indigo", two magical stories about children inspired and forever changed by the mystery of the sea. These two short novels deal especially with issues of childhood and adolescence. Hoffman has said that in children's books realism and magic go hand in hand and she believes that writing in the tradition of the fairy tale frees a writer to see all the possibilities and to reach for deeper truths.
