There's no such thing as mermaids... right?

From the lake to the park to the beach, she looks for mermaids everywhere. Could her sister be right? Or are mermaids hiding just out of sight?

With an engaging search-and-find element on every page, this hilarious story is packed full of fun for kids to enjoy. The bouncy, rhyming text makes for the perfect read-aloud and Katy Halford's adorable art gives kids plenty to explore.

A hilarious new mythical tale that's sure to become a family favorite!
