This original fairytale of a two-tailed mermaid and the circus boy who befriends her is illustrated in sumptuous watercolors. Two unique characters and two worlds equals twice the adventure in this beautiful book. Praise for The Melancholic Mermaid: "Make room next to The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling. The Melancholic Mermaid deserves a spot on every child's bookshelf" (Q & Q Starred Review) "George's narrative is ethereal and formal, with a voiceover quality that invests the artwork with cinematic flow" (Kirkus)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 year old loves it! This is a great story with beautiful drawings. My daughters loves it. And I like it because the language Kallie uses is nicer to read than a lot of other children books.
