A striking, under-the-sea version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as only Jan Brett could create
When Kiniro, the mermaid, comes upon a gorgeous house made of shells and coral, she can’t resist going inside to have a look around. The octopus family is not at home, but the baby octopus’s breakfast, chair, and bed are just right for Kiniro.
The bed is so irresistible, she falls asleep. That makes for quite a surprise when the octopus return home.
But the baby’s shock at discovering a mermaid in her bed is forgotten when Kiniro gives her a very special gift.
Intricate, colorful scenes of an underwater paradise transport this classic fairy tale to a magical land inspired by the seas off the coast of Okinawa, Japan. Chock full of fish and fauna and adventure, this mermaid’s story will enchant readers of all ages.
