    Water Tales

    Fans of Alice Hoffman get two magical stories for the price of one in this single-volume edition of her best-selling mermaid novels, Aquamarine and Indigo. These two short novels are about children dealing with common issues of adolescence who are inspired and forever changed by the mysteries of the sea. Hoffman has said that in children's books realism and magic go hand in hand. She believes that writing in the tradition of the fairy tale frees a writer to see all the possibilities and reach for deeper truths.

    Green Angel

    This stirring parable of hope follows a young girl as she finds her way through the world after a mysterious explosion destroys her city and her family. Struggling to survive physically and emotionally in a place where nothing seems to grow and ashes cover everything, 15-year-old Green retreats into the ruined realm of her garden. It is only through a series of mysterious encounters with a ghostly white dog and a mute boy; that Green relearns the lessons of love and begins to heal.
