This book found me, rather than me finding it.
Over the past three days I ignored an incredibly strong, unexplainable sense to revisit a book written by Julia Johnson, entitled The Peacock & The Mermaid. Until yesterday, when I finally took action and, within our newly-assembled and orderly-stacked home library, this unread book caught my attention and took precedence over another.
My daughters and I immediately devoured it through wet eyes, sighs of empathy and compassionate giggles!
This heart-warming story is of a young girl who finds a malnourished cheetah cub in a middle-eastern souq. The child’s relationship with this wild animal gives young readers an insight into the much-needed conservation and ethical protection of wildlife. While I bought our copy in the Middle East, it’s also sold via Amazon.
