Kathy Mezei tells a delightful story of Cuthbert (son of Nellie of Loch Ness), who swims via the Northwest Passage to Hornby Island, off the British Columbia coast, where, in the deep sea caverns, and much to the terror of the local Merpeople, he takes up residence. A tale filled with adventure and great tenderness, one that brings the adventures of summer to life all year round.

Kathy Mezei is a professor in the English Department at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, and specializes in Canadian Literature. She wrote Cuthbert and the Merpeople one summer while camping on Hornby Island. Every day she would take her daughter, Robin, out in a canoe, tell her an episode, and then hurry back to shore where she would quickly type it up on her portable typewriter.
