What's Lilly and Fin About

Publisher Summary

These mermaid friends are fishing for trouble! Lilly and Fin are merpups—mermaid kids—who love to play and explore the caves outside the mermaid city. They aren’t really supposed to leave the city, but that’s what makes it so much fun! Surely all those stories about Two-Legs (you know, humans) and sea monsters are just made up to scare young merpups. Little do they know, a real live human couple is on the hunt for a mermaid to add to their collection of rare sea creatures. If Two-Legs exist, what about sea monsters? With fun full-color illustrations by the author herself, this adventure is sure to capture all two-legged chapter-book readers!

What Kind of Book is Lilly and Fin


What Questions Should I Ask My Child

  • Ask your child how rules keep us safe. Lilly and Fin go exploring outside of the designated safe area and end up in danger (near a mermaid catching submarine!)
  • Talk about how sometimes people aren’t what they seem--if you give someone a chance, you might be surprised at the friend you find (like the sea monster!)
