Example of text (from the first story):-
'Harmony lived with her mother at the very bottom of the ocean.
They were so poor they could only afford a tiny cave. This was cramped, dark and very cold. It froze their fins and took the shine off their scales. Harmony tried to keep up their spirits by singing beautiful songs. Her voice was so enchanting that passing fish had to stop and listen........'
And this talent proves very useful, not to mention profitable, when poor Harmony's mother is under the weather and Harmony has to go and find some 'polkadot seaweed'........in the Pirates' Graveyard! Eek!
But, don't worry...... all is well that ends well!
Super book for little girls!
