The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling author Julia Donaldson captures the magic of the mermaid’s song in this dramatic story of how a mermaid is lured from her beautiful home by the sea to the circus to sing for the crowds. How she escapes with the help of her old friends from the sea and her new friends from the circus is witty told in the Children’s Laureate’s trademark rhyming couplets. Lydia Monk’s glittery illustrations on every page add dazzle!
The Singing Mermaid by Julia Donaldson
Did you ever go to Silversands on a sunny summer's day? Then perhaps you saw the mermaid who sang in the deep blue bay.
The singing mermaid is tempted away from her home at Silversands to join the circus. The audiences love her but the poor mermaid, kept in a tank by the wicked circus owner Sam Sly, soon longs to return to the freedom of the sea. Will she ever escape? This is a beautiful, lyrical new picture book from the creators of the bestselling What the Ladybird Heard. It's an utterly enchanting tale that will captivate their legions of fans.
Praise for What the Ladybird Heard:
“A terrific and witty adventure.” - Guardian
“A superb book to read aloud.” - Daily Mail
