Summary

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.
