Mabel lives with her parents in The Mermaid Hotel, by the sea. One day a particularly interesting old lady comes to stay. There is something very suspicious about her, with her growly voice and her heavy trunks and her beady-eyed tortoise. Why does no one know her REAL name?


Illustrated by Lauren O'Hara, this is perfect to read aloud with all the family.
