Tales of the Mer Family Onyx is an “all in the family” book about Neptune, his wife, Glendora, and their pair of Mer twins: the teenagers Emerald and Sapphire, the tweens Rainbow and Bowrain, baby Ruby and Neptune’s daughter of the race of mini- mermaids, Pinky. The book begins with Glendora’s introduction of her family and Neptune’s challenge to his children. In the process, the Mer Children escape their father’s shadow and make themselves proud.
