With a mermaid for a mother and a super-tall sports fan for a guardian, halfmermaid Thora isn’t like most 10-year-old girls. So it’s no surprise when things go awry shortly after landing (or docking) in London. First, their houseboat, the Loki, disappears, along with Thora’s rare sea-unicorn, Shirley. When a friend of her caretaker, Mr. Walters, invites them for a visit, Thora discovers more trouble, namely a girl named Louella who is trying to save her family’s estate. Thora thinks she can help, but first she must solve her own fishy mystery and find her beloved Shirley.

Young readers and mermaid fans will love this witty illustrated book about Thora—a not-so-ordinary girl with a nose and, yes, a blow hole, for adventure.
