The Singing Mermaid

(5 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Following on from What the Ladybird Heard and The Rhyming Rabbit, Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks have teamed up for another engaging picture book, this time about a mermaid with an exceptional singing voice.

When Sam Sly invites the Singing Mermaid to join the circus, she is excited by the promise of fame and fortune. But things are not what they seem, and the Singing Mermaid soon finds herself confined to a fish tank, longing for the freedom of the ocean. Luckily a sharp-eyed seagull and a clever circus acrobat are on hand, and come up with a plan to help the Singing Mermaid escape.

Julia Donaldson's engaging rhyming text brings a hint of magic to this lively story that is perfectly complemented by Lydia Monks' vibrant illustrations. Young readers will enjoy exploring the bright and bold spreads, complete with sparkly glitter on each page, vividly recreating the Singing Mermaid's underwater home, and the colourful world of the circus.
