    Long before Christianity made an entrance in northern Europe, a rich story-culture of legends and sagas prevailed in which nature stood central. This world was populated by a living nature, where primal powers played and plants and stones spoke, and this is the domain of the Naiads – tiny, sparkling wish-sprites, the smallest of nature’s creatures. In this first book of ‘The Naiad Legends’, two little wish-sprite sisters, Scarlett and Rosy, dance and play in a timeless River. Although their life is careless and free, Scarlett becomes weary of the endless repetition. She takes a step that takes readers on a journey of discovery. Scarlett does something which no Naiad has done before: she asks ‘why?’ Why does everything change colour? And who is behind it all? The tiny wish-sprite decides then and there to go in search of the creator of the world.
