Please please please let me know if you remember this book or its name or author. It's a book I read back when I was little, in the mids early 20s. I remember it was a child's series that involved a pixie from another realm with rainbow wings that met a girl and her brother, and they all worked together to return various creatures back to where they belong. I remember there being a mermaid in a fish tank or a pet store and an aggressive gnome in someone's garden.
Anyone who knows, please email me at aarin. I am looking for a children's book which may have been written in French. All I remember is the cover which had a boy fishing in a boat. What was unique about this book is that it came with a round frame that had the same image as the cover I believe and it could be hung separately.
I am going on very little here, but perhaps that special additional gift of frame triggers memories. Nathalie -I can be reached at nas71 aol.

A harsh, sadistic man, the earl's death was not something Annabel mourned. Now in her mid-forties, Annabel enjoys her widowhood and has no desire to ever be under a man's thumb again. Not even a handsome duke like Mayne, who is far too young for her anyway. Annabel's one desire is to find the daughter who was taken away from her. For that she needs a man with power and status. She needs the Duke of Mayne. When the two are thrust together, Annabel struggles to fight her attraction to the charming Phin.
