The beloved and bestselling author of Inkheart returns with a chapter book full of mischief, heart, and kid mermaids!
These mermaid friends are fishing for trouble!
Lilly and Fin are merpups—mermaid kids—who love to play and explore the cave... s outside the mermaid city. They aren’t really supposed to leave the city, but that’s what makes it so much fun! Surely all those stories about Two-Legs (you know, humans) and sea monsters are just made up to scare young merpups.
Little do they know, a real live human couple is on the hunt for a mermaid to add to their collection of rare sea creatures. If Two-Legs exist, what about sea monsters?
With fun full-color illustrations by the author herself, this adventure is sure to capture all two-legged chapter-book readers!
