Dick King-Smith Å 0 Summary Summary The Merman ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook While on vacation in Scotland on her tenth birthday Zeta meets a wise kindly old merman. This children s novel is the story of how 10 year old Zeta meets a merman while on a family vacation in Scotland The merman Marinus teaches her to swim and many other things about the fantastical ocean worldI read this book due to recognizing the author of two classic children s novels Babe and The Water Horse I found the writing pretty good whimsical and engaging but I simply could not get past the plotA little kid is being invited and encouraged to sneak out behind her parent s backs early each morning while they are asleep in order to go have lessons alone with a grown man or merman I know that this is intended to be an endearing kid s book with friendship themes but I kept cringingThe merman Marinus is described by Zeta as being a younger man presumably looking to be in his 20 s in 30 s despite his white hair he is actually 140 years old 10 year old Zeta even describes his body freuently as being slim and strongly built Many descriptions follow of Zeta referring to Marinus as handsome and beautiful Further praise is made of his powerful physiue and flowing hair and clear blue eyes For example take this passage Whether it was the grasp of his strong hands or his gentle smile or the look in those sea blue eyes that were fixed upon hers she did not know but whatever it was she felt relaxed I could easily have assumed that the above passage was taken from a light romance novel Why does Zeta keep describing the man s strength constantly Marinus encourages Zeta to take swim lessons with him each morning investing a ton of time into her When Zeta goes for her first lesson and has doubts he urges her to Trust yourself to me He holds her hands as soon as she first gets in the water yes to help her swim but still He is also aware that Zeta is spending time with him against her parent s permission and encourages her to keep it a secret and lie to them And even outside of their lessons together Marinus is still keeping tabs on Zeta He creepily knows all about her life even including what she was served for dinner last night He watches her constantly whether she is walking on the beach with her parents or out on a boat Zeta uestions how he can possibly know so much about her but she shuts down her own doubts telling herself He just knows these things Within 2 days of knowing each other many behaviors between the pre teen girl and the merman seem romantic like something that lovers would do for example buying and gifting each other jewelry And when Zeta asks Marinus if he will come back to the same sea next year he says Only if you do In the real world obviously these enormous red flags would scream predator but kids won t get that impression at all in this storyBased on the premise I would not recommend that children read this There are plenty of other great children s books to choose from
