ALEA AQUARIUS – 6 titles
by Tanja Stewner and illustrations Claudia Carls
A different kind of mermaid story – no fairytale, but dealing with the current issues of water pollution and climate change!
An ancient, magical civilization exists underwater, long forgotten by us ordinary humans. Its citizens face extinction, poisoned by the pollution of the oceans. When an orphaned girl sets out to explore her past, she discovers she is one of the rare survivors of the mer people and that it is down to her to save the water world from destruction.
Alea Aquarius imparts courage, stands for friendship and is dedicated to protecting the environment and helping her fellow humans – the perfect recipe for hours of reading fun with Alea and the Alpha Cru.
The adventures of Alea Aquarius have touched the hearts of children across Germany and abroad with their emotional story of love and friendship set in a unique mythical universe. Alea Aquarius breaks with the traditional notion of romantic mermaid stories. Instead, it combines a rich, adventurous underwater world with great friendship, tender romance and one of the most pressing issues of our time: The threat that humanity is causing for the environment – a hot button issue amongst young audiences.
