This book consists of 3 stories from the Mermaid Kingdom series: Shyanna’s Wish, Rachel’s Worry, and Cora’s Mystery. The girls are best friends, each a mermaid with Rachel being half mermaid, half human. The stories basically take place in the sea, but there are some parts where they are on land. Each of the girls tells a story but they are all intertwined to some degree. I really like that this was done, the stories are all different, but all fit together in one larger story.

Each of the stories feature something of a worry or a concern happening to the girls. In the first story, Shyanna is worried people will not care or will forget about her birthday since it coincides with a special day in the kingdom and even her mother seems preoccupied. In Rachel’s Worry, she worries about her friend Owen and why is he so distant with her all of a sudden? And in Cora’s Mystery we meet Cora and how a stolen mascot is cause for concern. Each problem or worry gets solved in a good way with the girls learning a lesson along the way.

There were beautiful, colourful illustrations throughout the book, but the way the characters, the setting, the families, the way of life was described, you could picture it before you even saw the pictures.

I would recommend this book to young children ages 8 to 12, especially girls. It is a fun book to read, and if you love mermaids you will just love this book.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
