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?

With glitter throughout, this is a beautiful, lyrical new picture book from the Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, creators of the bestselling What the Ladybird Heard.
