Oh, fish whiskers and ling lies! Here are four fabulous fishy tales about Madeline the mermaid, her merdog, Byron, and her mercat, Bella.

Will Madeline be swallowed up by the monster Kraken? Or will they be bored to death by the talkative Pufferfish? Can she escape the Sea Harpy with her hair of hissing snakes? And prevent a war of magic between the rival Sea Witches - a war that would mean the end for all sea creatures?

'Fienberg's exhuberant fantasies, her sense of fun, and above all her brilliant play with language bring to mind the early magic of Margaret Mahy.' Margaret Dunkle, Australian Bookseller + Publisher
