Kimberly Muller, Michael Muller, Last Night I Swam With a Mermaid
Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid is a magical children's tale spun by author Kimberly Muller and brought to life by her husband, world-renowned photographer, Michael Muller. The book will be available for purchase starting on Earth Day, April 22, 2012, at select retailers and online at www.lastnightiswamwithamermaid.com.
Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid "serves as a catalyst to spread the message to our children that the oceans are the lifeblood of planet Earth and humankind. The book uses the mythical mermaid to ignite creativity and inspire families to get involved in the movement and play a pivotal role in creating cultural momentum. 'As parents it is our job to engage our children in a lasting and meaningful way. We must lead by example,' says author Kimberly Muller.
"When Kimberly became a mother, she became increasingly aware of the state our world was in and wanted to do something to help the planet and in turn raise her children in a better world. Kimberly was deeply inspired by her daughter's love of fables as well as her husband's acclaimed images of a world under the sea. From this inspiration was born her second children's book Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid.
"Michael Muller is responsible for the breathtaking images that bring 'Mermaid' to life. Before his wife Kimberly expressed her desire to make the book, Michael had been fighting to save the ocean. When he is not photographing the most recent superhero movie poster, he is doing what he can to promote marine life conservation."
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Last Night I Swam with a Mermaid will benefit Philippe Cousteau's EarthEcho International (www.earthecho.org/), a nonprofit organization who's mission is to empower youth to take action that restores and protects our water planet.
Last Night I Swam With A Mermaid is self-published with a suggested retail price of $ 24.99.
