Grade 1-4-By Edith Nesbit. Four children rescue a mermaid and plunge into a great sea adventure.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Imagine helping to rescue a REAL mermaid from captivity and then going with her to her kingdom under the sea, riding around on seahorses and being caught up in a war! Join Francis, Mavis, Bernard and Kathleen for an adventure that's not just another day on the beach.
Yes, dear, do, said the Princess Maia; "but don't do anything rash. No sorties now. You Lobsters are so terribly brave. But you know Mother said you weren't to. Ah me! --war is a terrible thing! What a state the rivers will get into with all this water going on, and the winds all loose and doing as they like. It's horrible to think about. It will take ages to get things straight again."
