This book was given to Ellie after she finished her 2nd Spartan Race. Every summer our girl turns into a mermaid in the pool. Great stories from Usborne

When I read the first story in the book I was not too impressed with the self-sacrifical theme as it is mostly a reoccuring one in the written literature for children, however I must say that the other two tales in the book caught me off guard. I suppose they seemed interesting to me because I found myself thinking about a resolution to the stories' climatic peaks while I was reading them.

A definite re-read for my girls...yup!

Not Bea's review as such as we only purchased this today. Read at bedtime and a delightful trio of stories of Mermaids.

This is a stage one book, aimed at readers who have just started reading alone. I think Bea is going to enjoy reading this one by herself.

A magical bed time story. I read it in around 20 minutes. I remember when I was a little girl I used to dream of being a mermaid and one of my favourite movies was The Little Mermaid ( by Disney mind you not the original by Hans Christian Anderson which I discovered when I was older and found it was rather depressing and sad). This also has beautiful illustrations with intricate and it's also a wonderful short read with 3 different stories contained. Though the stories were predictable

I read this to my niece during a car ride. Not much to appeal to an adult, but kept the attention of a five-year-old well.

This is a fun book about mermaids and wonderful ocean pictures. Kinda like the Disney Little Mermaid movie, parts of it anyway?

A child's book, yet awfully like a small collection of fractured fairytales, one almost like Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, or perhaps the Disney version.
