Maui Mermaid Meets Baby Mermaid

Spotted! ONE Rainbow Mermaid with a tail of shimmering blue, and her Mer-baby sister makes TWO mermaids! Seen sunbathing on Maui, these Mermaids came across the Pacific Ocean; all the way from Vancouver. We would love to see your Mer-moments; so email us at: info@hawaiianchildrensbooks.com
