The singing mermaid is tempted away from her home at Silversands to join the circus. The audiences love her but the poor mermaid, kept in a tank by the wicked circus owner Sam Sly, soon longs to return to the freedom of the sea. Will she ever escape?With glitter throughout, The Singing Mermaid is a beautiful, lyrical picture book from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, the creators of the bestselling What the Ladybird Heard.
Lydia Monks is one of the most original picture book artists working today. Her distinctive use of colour and collage has won her critical acclaim and several awards, including the Smarties Prize.
