Lemily by the Sea is the story of a young child of unspecified gender and their encounters with intriguing sea creatures. When Lemily grows restless for a human friend, Sebastian bursts on the scene, but it doesn't go well. Enter Imelda, a sea-animal nanny who teaches the children a variety of life skills, the most important of which is how to get along. Any child who has felt lonely or isolated will be heartened by this rollicking tale of friendship and shared adventure.
