" My daughter loved this chapter book! She didn't want to go to sleep until she finished the last chapter. I enjoyed sharing this book about friendship and pets with her. She loves mermaids and pets and there is a wonderful lesson to learn too. I am sure we will be seeking out the whole series in the near future. A wonderful find and a good read. " said.

"I received a free review copy of this book through Goodreads.
This is obviously part of an established series, but I didn't feel lost in the world, as concepts and characters are introduced when appropriate. I think it would be great for younger kids! It's very straightforward, with everything working towards a single plot.
The mechanics of the world are a little beyond me - like, how do you blow a conch shell underwater? - but I'm willing to handwave most of it as mermaid magic. However, I couldn't work out how big the characters are meant to be! Small enough to ride seahorses, but large enough to use human crutches?

Echo the mermaid girl, is supposed to be a huge part of her upcoming dance performance. But after she is injured riding a friends seahorse, she isn’t even allowed to swim, let alone dance. They try quite a few ways to get her tail better with mixed results. Will she be healed in time to compete?
This book features some valuable lessons about friendship and supporting your team. The illustrations are darling and the author has done a good job building this world. I have read quite a few books in this series and they are all very similar in quality and popular with 2nd grade readers at my school. In long series I tend to stick with books 1-5 or so and so I probably wouldn’t add this to my school library, but it was a nice read.
