There's something fishy going on at Halo's school - the boy's swimming team members keep disappearing! When Halo goes to uncover what is going on, she finds herself head to head with one hungry mermaid. And she's not satisfied with just marshmallows anymore. Will Halo be eaten as well or can she use her candy to defeat the evil mermaid?

Another great adventure in the Princess Candy series. I like how this superhero is just another kid who was given the gift of some superpowers. And she doesn't ha

The second installment of the Princess Candy graphic novel series has a better developed story than the first and is a quick, fun superhero adventure with a fiesty young girl who saves the day! The illustrations by Crowther are bright and engaging--moving the story right along. I read this with a group of first and second graders and they were really interested by the graphic novel format and the story; they wanted to predict what would happen and who was the villain. Older readers would like th ...more

Wow! What a fun graphic novel for kids! This easy to read, easy to follow, fun story will be an awesome recommend for kids. There is even a nice little glossary, questions, and writing prompt at the end. I can totally see offering this up to teachers for a fun read aloud!
Very girly/princessy, but it's nice to see a frilly heroine take charge and save the day. My female students will love this series. ...more

I liked it a little bit, but no so so much. I wasn't scared of Princess Candy, but I was scared of the Marshmallow Mermaid.

My kid read these and I got curious, so I did too. They're pretty good. Cute, modern and with a good message. I really liked the illustrations and their vibrant colors. Great pre-teen read. ...more

Flashy and fun, but pretty empty. Adequate, but I think it could have been done much better--both simpler and more substantial.

Halo is still cute, still finding her way and and still trying to do good. In this books she tries out some of the other elemental candies, makes a friend, and fights a marshmallow obsessed monster mermaid. This adorable comic is great for 6-10 year old girls reluctant to read. I just tested it on my 12 year old niece and she said "it's easy but I still liked It because it looks so cool". ...more
