This review is from: Can You Catch a Mermaid? (Paperback)
As pointed out by one of the earlier reviewers, my daughter (5) immediately noticed the glitter on the cover in the bookshop, read the title and decided that her search for a book to take home was over!
This is a beautifully illustrated book with the pictures conveying the mood of each page in an enchanting, almost haunting way. However I do think that in a book this long the story could be developed a little further. My daughter could not have read it herself and in stories I am reading to her she is able to absorb a little more development in the characters.
If your children liked this book they would find "Laura's Star" equally spellbinding, and get the same warm feeling as they drift into a night's sleep.
Good, but not a classic.
