Reviews

... delightful... Beautifully illustrated... this book takes us on fabulous sun-drenched island holiday with a pair of mother-daughter mermaids who swim with dolphins, sip coconut milkshakes and bread each other's hair, siniging lullabies and vowing never to leave. The story taps perfectly into every little girl's fantasy of having her mother all to herself and evokes gorgeously nostalgic memories - familiar to readers of every age - of wanting the summer to go on and on for ever. -- The Observer This is an appealingly pretty picture book for young girls. -- Cork Evening Echo Pauline Stewart's engaging verse chimes well with Miriam Latimer's cheerful illustrations... -- Child Education Ideal for mothers and daughters to enjoy together. -- The Sun
