Gill Macdonald has written a book entitled ‘ The Wishing Eel and Other Grim Tales’. Closely based on the Common Eel, the Wishing Eel is a magic creature and virtually extinct. Gill is hoping this book may raise the profile of eels by highlighting their extraordinary lives so that people see them in a new light as something extraordinary and worth conserving. The book begins and ends with the eel which is ultimately noble and returns to the Sargasso sea to spawn and die.
