About the Book

The beauty of this book is that each poem is accompanied by a full-page beautiful illustration. The adult narrator will read the poem to the child, and the child will be able to identify in the image everything that is in the poem. Each poem is about a mermaid, but the beginning of the book concerns how the mermaids are instructed by a red octopus to fulfill their mermaid duties. Girls will love the book and that is the targeted audience.
