THORA’S a half-mermaid. She’s got scales on her legs, purple feet and a blowhole that squirts water from the top of her head. And as mermaid law commands, Thora must spend ten years at sea, followed by ten years on land. Life for Thora is a spectacular adventure, sailing the seas in a houseboat with her mermaid mother and guardian Mr. Walters. But following her tenth birthday, Thora is ready for her time on land—in Grimli, a seaside town marked by the corrupt plots of fat-cat tycoon Frooty de Mare.

Thora certainly has her work cut out for her there, not to mention a bit of exploring into her own mysterious Grimli roots. Thora is an irresistible new character with an attitude all her own. Gillian Johnson’s fanciful tale—full of charming black-and white illustrations—invites young mermaid enthusiasts to celebrate the unflappable spirit of an exceptional heroine. Thora is a wonderful, whimsical summer read that is an acclaimed Australian bestseller.
