Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The year he is ten, Daniel Jennings meets a mermaid. With a single word, she opens the world for him, though he must puzzle out her meaning over another ten years on the wind-scoured coast of Coquille, the Pacific Northwest island upon which Daniel lives with his grandfather. They are a quiet pair, islands themselves. Daniel, for instance, never tells his grandfather about the key that, after the mermaid slips away, a sea otter brings to him in a shell. The boy wears the key on a string around his neck and soon learns its miraculous powers for saving life. His grandfather never teas him of a girl whose name Daniel knows but does not recognize until after the old man can tell him nothing. Daniel's story is of marvelous happenings, told in the rapt and measured voice of a young man finding, for the first time, peace after tumult, pattern beneath life s apparent imbalance. The mermaid. Is she a messenger, a creature from one of the many stories the boy has read? Or is she a ghost?. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: The year he is ten, Daniel Jennings meets a mermaid. With a single word, she opens the world for him, though he must puzzle out her meaning over another ten years on the wind-scoured coast of Coquille, the Pacific Northwest island upon which Daniel lives with his grandfather. They are a quiet pair, islands themselves. Daniel, for instance, never tells his grandfather about the key that a sea otter brings to him after the mermaid slips away. The boy wears the key on a string around his neck and soon learns its miraculous powers for saving life. His grandfather never tells him of a girl whose name Daniel knows -- but does not recognize until after the old man can tell him nothing. Daniel's is a story of marvelous happenings, told in the rapt and measured voice of a young man for the first time finding peace after tumult, pattern beneath life's apparent imbalance.

From Booklist: Gr. 5^-8. On his twentieth birthday, the book's "author," Daniel Jennings, recounts what happened to him when he was a boy. Orphaned after the death of his parents, Daniel goes to live with his grandfather on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia. Daniel, too, is remote. He doesn't go to school and rarely speaks with the other islanders; when he does, he is shy. With his eyes always toward the ground, Daniel finds things. One day, he finds a mysterious comb, which he recognizes as a mermaid's comb. And sure enough, before long the mermaid appears. She calls him by name, then disappears, but sends him a magic key that Daniel uses over the years to rescue both animals and his future wife. After his grandfather's death, Daniel learns more about his family, the mermaid, and the tie between them that closes the circle. In both format and length, this book is small, but Rylant fills it with mysteries. In so short a text, each word is precious, and choosing them so precisely and elegantly is where Rylant shines. Her seemingly effortless way with words makes her story a pleasure for readers of any age. What imperfections there are come mostly from intention rather than execution. The book occasionally hovers around the pretentious and has more than one brush with the coincidental. And readers mustn't look too closely at some of the story's particulars--or one might wonder, Don't these islanders have television, or computers, or . . . ? No, to keep the story's mystical mood intact, treat the book like a fragile ornament: handle it carefully to preserve its luster. Ilene Cooper
