Once every one hundred years, the mermaids of the Hidden Lagoon and the witches of Sinkville get together for a party! The Top Witch greets the Mermaid Queen, who is wheeled through the streets of Sinkville in a bathtub. Mermaids Beattie, Mimi and Zelda can't wait to meet a real witch, but when Tiga is unexpectedly sucked down the plughole into the Hidden Lagoon before the celebrations even start, things start to go magically, marvellously, megalodon-sharkally WRONG.

Sibeal Pounder brings together the characters from her brilliant, bonkers, bestselling Bad Mermaids and Witch Wars series for a once-in-a-lifetime World Book Day adventure.

I had not heard of the book before but I liked it and just long enough for bed time reading! 

There are other books in this series and some parts I didnt follow because of this but i still liked it Lots of different characters

I would Recommend it  to any mermaid, witch or fairy fan and would love to read the other bad mermaid books.

The character names in this book are fabulous. This book gripped me from the first chapter with the mermaid words and would be brilliant to read aloud! A great combination with witches and mermaids, a lively pace and a fun read.

this book was great! I haven't read any of the other books in this series so parts of it didn't make as much sense as others but it was still good. My favourite character was steve the seahorse who says that he is a miracle because he is the only talking seahorse in the world! this book had me hooked to see what happened next and my favourite part was when the mermaids and witches has to go on a crazy game show so they could buy a bath! this book was really fun and I enjoyed reading it. Recommended to mermaid, witch and fairy fans age 9 plus!

My daughter enjoyed this book, and she loved it was about witches and mermaids. She liked the bit at the beginning where it showed the characters, their names and what they liked doing. This was helpful, as she hadn't read any of the books before. It was a fun book to read about friendship

Every 100 years, witches and mermaids have a giant party. Three mermaids are very excited to meet a real witch, but instead of the ruler of the witches coming to meet them, they find that a normal witch named Tiga has fallen down the plughole between the two worlds instead. 

To get back up, they must win a bath tub. Will they do it in time? This was an exciting and comical book.

A lovely story about Witches getting stuck in Mermaid's hidden lagoon and trying to get home again. We enjoyed reading this story, it has lots of laugh out loud bits. We struggled slightly initially as there are a lot of characters but this was quickly overcome. 
If you love Mermaids and Witches then this is for you.

A nice short book but I didn’t really feel the story excited me. To many characters for the length of the story to get to know them properly. This book was about the life of mermaids and witches where things went wrong but eventually worked out in the end!

I nice short story about witches and mermaids. The overview of the characters at the start was a good idea but so many additional characters appeared throughout the book I really lost track of what was going on! I didn’t feel the story got going, but if you are looking for a short read this is a good choice.

I really struggled with this book. Many characters were introduced early on with many short descriptions. Maybe if I had read any of the previous books in the series I would be familiar with the characters if they had been introduced in the earlier books. This is definitely a fantasy story about mermaids and witches so maybe mermaid fans of this series would like this book. If any age range would be interested they would be around 6 to 8.

I didn’t like this book at all. It had a lot of nonsense words and I couldn’t keep up with all the characters. I nearly put the book down on page one instead I carried on reading but it just got worse. I am really disappointed with that book because I read witch glitch and that was great. I would not recommend this book to anyone unless they love fantasy but still it is a bit confusing I didn’t even know who the main character was.

This book did not make sense and was very hard to understand. It did not intrege me but the cover was excellent. This could have been better written but was not. I wish it had been very good just like witch wars. But a very good story plot.
