The fairies are down on the beach having all kinds of fun but their day will really be made if they find some mermaids. It’s very unusual to see a mermaid, warns the fairy Queen.

Lovely illustrations tell this gentle, imaginative fantasy.


Zoe and the Mermaids by Jane Andrews

When all the fairies go for an outing to the beach, Zoe and Pip hope to catch sight of a mermaid while they enjoy the sun. But when they actually see one, they find her crying on a rock. Her sister is trapped under the water and Zoe and Pip offer to help, but they will have to use all their fairy magic to avoid the dangers of the deep sea.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
