This is the first of six books about six young mermaids who are sent out by the mermaid queen to renew the light crystals that fade every year. In this one the mermaids are blown off course by the queen's evil sister Mantora who wants to usurp the throne. Misty loses her crystal and has to get it back.

Rather sweet mermaid adventure for young readers. There's not much characterisation but I liked the world created and loved Helen Turner's cute illustrations.

This is very much an episode and you ne
Silly fluff - fine for Rainbow Magic fans.

Read this after my 7-year-old cousin read it and loaned it to me. Surprisingly enjoyable - I went on to read the whole series. I loved the details about the animals and plants that live in the ocean and the light push to ecological awareness and conservation. I thought it was fun and educational.

I went out on a limb and bought these for Sam based on some reviews I'd read. I think it's perfect for her. Totally formulaic but in a way that's good for a 6-year-old :-) It's got magic, mermaids, a mean mermaid, adventure, fancy purses - everything a little girl could hope for! :-)

True rating: 3.5 stars.

A nice little book about mermaids for very young readers. No extensive characterization or detailed descriptions, but enough of each to spark a child's imagination and let it take over. A bevy of cute illustrations supplement the text and help the story along.
