Mermaids Save The Ocean

Illustrations by Nancy Perkins

The mermaids of the world begin to notice all the human garbage that has been dumped into the oceans and seas of the world. Humans are trying to fix the situation, but not enough are fully aware of the severity of the ocean problem.
Two mermaids come up with a solution and all of the ocean dwellers come together to show the humans what they’ve done to their beloved seas and oceans.
The humans’ eyes are opened and everyone works together to save our environment.

A little red marble begins an extraordinary journey when it is won in a marbles competition and loved  by a little girl.  Several years later it is lost when it falls into the Atlantic ocean.
The marble slowly, over the years, turns into a lovely piece of sea glass as it is rolled and tumbled along the ocean floor.
Read about how this little marble is reunited with the little girl 60 years after being lost at sea.

As the Little Red Marble thought about all of its adventures while it was in the ocean, it smiled to itself. It remembered the dancing jellyfish, the races it watched between the crabs and the lobsters, the flying fish and the great whale. Its favourite memory though, was when it was a jockey during the seahorse derby.

In the 1800’s a hero was born. Ben is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and lived in the Wood Islands Lighthouse on PEI.
There were bears, deer and lynx  on the Island at that time,and Ben challenged a large black bear in order to save the lighthouse keeper and horses. He had many other adventures and became the local hero.
In the winter of 1885 there was a great storm. Three ice boats, returning over the Northumberland Strait from Nova Scotia, were lost in the gale. Ben, the great Chesapeake Bay Retriever was sent out with the rescuers to find the passengers and crews.
As hope waned, Ben finally found the survivors, led the rescuers to them and all were saved.
During the following summer, Ben also witnessed the Phantom ship as it burned in the Northumberland Strait. He was confused as it disappeared without a trace.

In this new story, Ben makes a friend, rescues sailors during a gale and finds out exactly what a train is. This is the final book in the Ben series. Watch for the book launch, coming in August.

The Mermaids help create Oceanic Park where ocean animals can show off their skills with parades and presentations.

Once Upon a Time… 

When Terrilyn Kerr was a little girl, she wanted something very, very badly that she never, ever got. And when she was a grandmother, that something inspired a book called The Little Red Marble.

She’s been writing ever since, and will continue to do so until the stories run out.
