About the Book

Maude likes her two tails, until the other merchildren begin teasing her for being different. She doesn't think things can get worse. But then she is captured by a fisherman. Meanwhile, on land, Tony faces difficulties of his own. Born with webbed fingers, he too is an outcast. Hoping to find acceptance, he joins a circus, but the Ring Mistress is cruel and life there is unbearable . . . until the circus purchases the mermaid. Tony and Maude slowly become friends. Will they find a way to escape not only the terrible circus but also their own sorrows? Two unique characters and two different worlds mean twice the adventure in this new fairy tale with stunning art by Abigail Haplin.
