While walking along the beach, you spot a shell, tiny footprints, seaweed, and other seaside treasures. Could these be the tell-tale signs of mermaids? Go exploring with the characters in this colorfully illustrated, somewhat perplexing, and creatively fun book and see if you can help them track the mermaids. The combination of real photographs and whimsical illustrations is not only unique, but very appealing to young readers. Paquette plays with language, font styles, and color to catch the reader's eye. A fun read-aloud, and one that would lend to a creative writing lesson, this energetic new book will surely be a great additional to any elementary library.
