The Mermaid School books

Mermaid School (Book 1)

It is Marnie Blue’s very first day at Mermaid School, and she’s worried. What if she can’t make any new friends, or if she’s asked to ride a seahorse?

And what will the teachers think when they find out that her aunt is Christabel Blue, the famous singer and DJ but also the naughtiest mermaid in the school’s history?

Marnie’s determined to make a good impression, but the Blue family are never far away from trouble…

Mermaid School: The Clamshell Show (Book 2)

If you’ve enjoyed Mermaid School, look out for the sequel swimming into bookshops in May 2020!

In this book the race is on to win the star role in the Clamshell Show. Marnie is so excited – now might be her chance to shine!

But not everyone is playing fair, and Gilly is more trouble than a tiger shark with a toothache. Will the show go on?
