The Mermaid Moon

In this magical picture book perfect for all young mermaid lovers, two best friends—one who lives on land, the other in the water—share an exciting adventure on the night of the Mermaid Moon: the one time each year mermaids can leave the sea.

Once, there were two best friends. One was from the sea, a mermaid named Merrin, and one was from the land, a human named Molly. Of course Merrin has never been to Molly's house; how can she visit when she must stay underwater? But then comes the night of the Mermaid Moon, when sea creatures can fly through the air! And this year, Merrin is finally old enough to join in. Together she and Molly visit the Mermaid Moon festival, eat ice cream, and ride on a swing in Molly's backyard. But when it is time for Merrin to leave—the moon is sinking toward the sea—she is unable to get down from a tree the girls have climbed. And if she doesn't get back home before the moon sets, the Mermaid Moon magic will disappear from the earth forever.

Here is a delightful and dramatic picture book that makes every girl's dream of being friends with a mermaid come true!

"Merrin and Molly are best friends forever. Merrin lives in the water with her mermaid mother and Molly with her family on land. They play together, seeking sea glass and shells and looking forward to the Mermaid Moon Festival. One night each year, all sea creatures can fly out of the sea and spend time frolicking and celebrating on land. Merrin knows that she must return to the water before the moon sets, or the magic night will never return. Molly takes her friend home, and the mermaid marvels at things she has never seen: lamps, fluffy rugs, and a backyard swing. But while rushing to get back to the sea before it's too late, Molly has an accident and Merrin chooses to stay and help. She calls on a huge whale who flies to the rescue and swoops through the air with the girls on his back. When safely home, Merrin and Molly promise to repeat their adventure next year. The magic of the story is reinforced by moonlit watercolor illustrations, creating an enchanting story of friendship without boundaries. VERDICT Magic, moonlight, and mermaids enrich this story of friendship. The lovely scenery of an unusual setting will appeal to young readers. "—School Library Journal
