A fantastic mermaid adventure, perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime or any time at all Tempted by the promise of fame and fortune, the Singing Mermaid joins a circus The crowds love her, but the poor mermaid is kept in a tank by the wicked circus owner Sam Sly, and she soon longs to return to the freedom of her ocean home The Singing Mermaid is a delightful tale from the stellar picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, creators of What the Ladybird Heard With brilliant rhyming verse read by Lauren Laverne, this story is loved by children and parents alike Enjoy stories from Julia Donaldson and Lydia MonksSharing a Shell, Sugarlump and the Unicorn, What the Ladybird Heard and The Girl, the Bear and the Magic Shoes This book was one of many my daughter got for her 2 year birthday Out of about 10 other books this has to be her favourite She always asks for this and we read it everyday at meal time She loves that all the sea creatures come to watch the singing mermaid She doesn t like Sam Sly and makes an angry noise when he won t let her go out of the fish tank and cheers when she escapes The illustrations are magnificent The storyline, rhyming and everything else is just magical for a child s cognitive development Up there with what the ladybird heard. I purchased this paperback version mainly for the glittery pages My daughter already had the hardback book version, but didn t like that the glitter was only on the front cover We have other books by this author illustrator in paperback and she loves being able to touch the pages Would recommend the rhyming story and the bright fun pictures. Another great story from Julia Donaldson My 3 and half year daughter loves this story Completely fascinated by dolphins and wants to become one her self too.The story it self is not so long and with beautiful illustration on each page can keep the attention of even the most difficult child Also the glitter on each page is great too. Huge fans of Julia s books in our house Wanted to buy this one for a while and finally got it recently The story is a bid sad and disturbing but it ends all happy Kids really loved it and the sparkly finish on the pages is a huge hit Love it as always
