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, The Singing Mermaid is a beautiful, lyrical picture book from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, the creators of the bestselling What the Ladybird Heard .

This has been a favourite in our house for such a long time. My daughter initially loved the rhythmic narrative and the amazing illustrations and then became more engaged in the story. It's such a delightful book to read and funny in places too.  A hidden gem from Julia Donaldson which doesn't get much attention. I highly recommend.

Julia Donaldson is very good at writing the rhyming story and this is as good as her other work. A mermaid that loves to sing but gets tricked into joining a circus...I won't tell you how it ends but it does feature a seagull.

Oh and if you like glitter then this book is for you. :-)

A gorgeous book which has all of Julia Donaldson's hallmarks including lovely well-paced rhyme. We loved the courageous seagull that helped the mermaid and the dastardly Sam Sly (What a name!!!).
