An Exciting Tale of Folklore and Mythology in the Island of Bermuda
by Susan Palmer
In this charming fantasy set on the enchanting (and perhaps enchanted) island of Bermuda, a 9 year old orphaned girl discovers the long-hidden entrance to the mysterious Crystal Caves. Chelsea, drawn by its beauty, begins to explore and meets Krystal, the mermaid, who is caretaker of the cave. Through Krystal, Chelsea learns of the dark secret that the cave holds and of the riddle that must be solved to find her missing parents. With excitement abounding, Chelsea embarks on an enchanting quest to solve 'The Riddle', and comes into contact with many colorful characters and mystical creatures, including 'Caustix' the cat and "Pringles' the frog. During her quest, young Chelsea learns some important lessons about life and particularly the lessons of respect and tolerance. She also shares with us a heartwarming and exhilarating look at native Bermudian life and customs.About the Author
