The Mermaid and the Shoe by K. G. Campbell

King Neptune has 50 daughters.  They all have special talents except Minnow.  She doesn't do anything very well except ask questions.  She's so afraid she doesn't have any special talents...

Kids Can Press and Net Galley allowed me to download and read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 1st, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a simple little story about a curious mermaid.  She keeps asking her father and her sisters questions and they don't have answers.  Then she finds an odd thing in the ocean.  It's red, it's strangely shaped, and her curiosity is killing her.  She visits the other animals in the ocean and asks them if they know what it is.  No one does.  As she travels along trying to find out, she answers her own earlier questions.  She also finds out what her little red treasure is.

This is a well done picture book for little ones that will make them smile when they see Minnow get named "The Explorer".  Do you have an explorer in your family?

Happy reading.
