Each story conjures up vivid and beautiful images. Fantasy and virtue are twin currents entwined throughout the flow of the stories.

The six seahorse stories are:
A seahorse discovers her purpose in life.
A tiny seahorse finds her power.

Sometimes the gentlest seahorse must protect her heart.
In the Land of Sooj, a seahorse always pays for a wrongdoing.
To one seahorse, creating is everything.
