By: Julia Donaldson
Illustrated by: Lydia Monks
The Singing Mermaid loves to sing for an audience. The sea creatures adore her. Sam Sly is a wicked circus owner who lures the Singing Mermaid away from her friends to join the circus. The crowds love her but she isn’t happy living in a fish tank rather than the ocean. She needs to figure out how to escape back to her ocean home of SIlversands. How can she do this when she has a tail and no leg? It is a good thing she is friends with a clever seagull and a talented acrobat.
A fun rhyming story that is full of drama as first the mermaid is lured away and then tries to return home. A wonderfully entertaining tale from the writer of The Gruffalo and the creative team that gave us the best selling What the Ladybird Heard. I’m yet to come across a Donaldson book that is a miss rather than a hit.
