A retelling of a traditional Cornish folktale, illustrated in full colour by Michael Foreman. Next time you stare out to sea and spot a glimmering in the waves, look closer...it just might be a merrymaid! When Zachy's friend, Tom Taskis meets a mysterious young lady, it is only Zachy who knows she's a merrymaid!
Tom asks Zachy not to say a word before he and his beautiful maiden disappear into the rushing water. Nearly a year later, when Zachy discovers a merrychild swept in from the crashing waves, he returns it to the spot where he last saw his friend Tom with the beautiful merrymaid...but will he see Tom or the merrymaid again?
