We're very pleased to see a sequel to a rather cool little story, featuring a distinctly different hero. Fairytale Frankie and the Tricky Witch was a superb little book and now Frankie is joined by a winsome lass with a fishy tale (or should that be tail?) of her own.
In "Fairytale Frankie and the Mermaid Escapade", Frankie is back - and this time she's enjoying a wonderful holiday by the seashore. A dark shadow is being cast across the coast though, as a rather grumpy sea monster is on the way to spoil everyone's summertime fun. The mermaids are worried, the wizard lifeguard is frantic and even a surfing prince doesn't want to go back into the water...
|Oo-er that doesn't sound good!|
|Uh oh! Is it doom for our plucky heroine?|
|The story builds the tension and excitement perfectly!|
Fab art from Steven Lenton helps to make this an early shoe-in for a favourite storytime treat.
"Fairytale Frankie and the Mermaid Escapade" by Greg Gormley and Steven Lenton is out today, published by Orchard Books.
