We would give it not only 5 but 6 stars if we could.,
This review is from: The Singing Mermaid (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)The Singing Mermaid is wonderful, well-written rhyming colourful book that makes kids join in and read along. I wouldn't expect anything less from Julia Donaldson, creator of so loved Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale, just to mention few.
Lydia Monks' illustrations are beautiful and lettering on the cover pages very inspiring. After reading the book my 6 year old daughter was practising her "mermaid" letters for good few hours and now we are planning to turn her drafts into ex-libris stamp.
The story line itself is very engaging. It tells a tale of a mermaid who was tricked and enslaved by greedy circus owner. Eventually all ends well but the ending is quite surprising when the mermaid, who does not have legs, runs away...
Another good thing about this book is the edition: quality hard cover that will last for years. It has also glitter and shiny elements on all pages - something that children, especially little girls, adore.
My daughter said she would give it not only 5 but 6 stars if she could. I have as well nothing but good things to say about The Singing Mermaid so we are giving it 5 stars (!)
