Emerald and the Sea Sprites

Book Synopsis

Meet Isadora Moon’s mermaid friend, Emerald! Emerald is learning how to be a mermaid princess, but there are just so many rules! She loves having fun with her friends and exploring her underwater world with her pet octopus, Inkibelle, she doesn’t want to be stuck in the palace with everyone looking at her and checking that she’s doing things the proper, royal way.

When Emerald and her stepsister, Delphina, sneak out of the palace in search of sea sprites they know it isn’t strictly ‘perfect mermaid princess’ behaviour, but they can’t resist!

Far from Scallop City they discover a glimmering coral reef. And nestled in the reef are three little shimmering sea sprites . . .

Emerald and Delphina are about to learn that being a mermaid princess is about more than just following the rules – it’s also about following your heart.

Our Review Panel says...

Emerald and the Sea Sprites is a fun, short chapter book about a mermaid princess and her stepsister. With green and black illustrations, we follow Emerald and Delphina on an adventure to find sea sprites after they sneak out of the palace. There’s also a pet octopus called Inkibelle. It’s a lovely story about siblings bonding, learning to share, and the importance of leaving creatures in their natural habitat. It also has a quiz at the back of the book and some ideas for things to make and do, as well as a fabulous sparkly cover! In the same world as Isadora Moon and Mirabelle, Emerald will be loved by fans of those books.
