Madeline the Mermaid

by Anna FienbergAnn James and Ann James

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/06/2010

Madeline the Mermaid lives in a conch shell with her merdog, Byron, and her mercat, Bella, and when she sings, a golden light flashes from her tail. Some people tell stories about mermaids and their wild, wicked ways, but Madeline is the friendliest mermaid you could ever meet.

Still, not all the creatures in the sea are friendly. Will Madeline be swallowed up by the monster Kraken? Or will she be bored to death by the talkative Pufferfish? Can she escape the Sea Harpy with her hair of hissing snakes? And prevent a war of magic between the rival Sea Witches?

'Fienberg's exuberant fantasies, her sense of fun, and above all her brilliant play with language bring to mind the early magic of Margaret Mahy.' Margaret Dunkle, Australian Bookseller and Publisher
