Mermaids Beattie, Mimi and Zelda, along with Steve the talking seahorse, are trapped aboard the spooky ship the Merry Mary, heading for the legendary (and super-stylish) Crocodile Kingdom. On land, Paris Silkensocks, ice-cream seller and GADGET QUEEN, has uncovered a plot to destroy the mermaid world.

Can Paris find the mermaids in time? Can Beattie avert a Crocodile Kingdom crabtastrophe? Can seahorses get seasick? All this and more will be revealed!

Featuring magical mysteries, fabulous fashion and a snappier than average transport system, the second Bad Mermaids adventure brings a whole new twist to the underwater world of mermaids. If you enjoyed Witch Wars or The Little Mermaid, you'll love this!

4 stars
Bad Mermaids on the Rocks is the second book in the Bad Mermaid series, which we really enjoyed and my daughter was desperate to read the second in the series. The mermaid queen from the Lost Lagoon is still fishnapped (from the first book), and the main characters Beattie, Zelda, Mimi and Steve the Seahorse have been transported to another mermaid kingdom. New adventures unfold, new mysteries to solve and new characters are introduced. The didn't over-do the number of characters in this book, which was the criticism of the first book.  The children really enjoyed this tale, but personally I didn't feel the story line was quite as good as the first book. We are looking forward to the next Bad Mermaid book. We love the illustrations and Steve the talking Seahorse is still making us laugh. If you enjoyed the first Bad Mermaids, you'll enjoy this one too!
