Summary

Here's the most enchanting undersea tale you can hear. With music, sound effects, and a host of sparkling characters, Myrtle is huge fun for for 4-8 year olds and their parents, and her story is perfect for long journeys. Unlike the other "merfolk", Myrtle has frogs legs; it's very embarrassing!

Her tale begins on the night of the Great Fish Ball. Starfish twinkle merrily and mermaids dance to the tunes of a fiddler crab, but Myrtle is too ashamed of her frog's legs to join the fun. She decides to ask the Wise Old Hermit Crab for some advice. The Hermit tells her that the only re-tailor worth going to is the Magnificent Sea Quin.

As Myrtle begins her great adventure, she's watched by Arabella Cuttlefish - the wickedest witch in the ocean. Arabella is tired of being ugly, but her beauty potion calls for a mermaid's feet, which makes Myrtle of particular interest.

On her journey, Myrtle meets a host of extraordinary characters, including Butch the Mussel, Gabriel the Angelfish, and Marlin the Wizard. But when Myrtle reaches the Sea Quin's sandcastle, her decision surprises everyone. The Tail of Myrtle the Mermaid is a riotous musical adventure that celebrates our individual uniqueness.

Underwater adventures with Myrtle the Mermaid

My kids loved this story. In particular, they enjoyed the songs and sound effects together with the lively reading of the story itself. They want more adventures with Myrtle!
