Lindsey Cole wrote The Mermaid and the Cow after she came across a cow whilst swimming the River Thames as a mermaid! This is a book of adventure, inspiring readers to help save our mermaids and their friends from plastic pollution.
In 2018, Lindsey wanted to do something about the plastic pandemic after cutting her hand on a small piece whilst freediving in Indonesia. So she swam the length of the River Thames as a mermaid to highlight how we’re all choking wildlife in our waterways with plastic, and rescued a cow along the way. This book is her story (oh, and she also did the illustrations!)
