About the Book

Mara had lost her comb. Mermaids never lose their combs because this would spell disaster. She must find it again no matter what it takes. She enlisted the support of Mrs Dugong whom she thought would help her find it. But after listening to her adventures she felt her only hope rested on her seeking to retrieve it herself.

About the Author

Marie Caveza has written short stories and poems many of them unpublished. However one of her stories- Hurricane Eye was published two years ago. Her formative years of learning took place on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. But she later moved to the UK where she took some professional training and further education. She has written short stories as a child mainly to entertain her brothers and sisters. Although she stopped writing for some time the love of writing had always fascinated her and kept the desire alive. This story had particularly fascinated the author because of an experience that her uncle related to them about what happened to her grandfather. It was something that was passed down through the generations. Although her uncle told them a very long time ago it remains as fresh in Marie's mind as yesterday. He told it with a conviction of a person who was certain he was telling the truth. So up till this day, she is still not sure of how much was fiction and how much was truth. Perhaps there is a bit of both in it.
