{Synopsis} – Be brave and keep the seas safe!

Nixie can’t wait to join the Royal Mermaid Rescue Crew. Along with a magical seapony partner, she’ll save merpeople in danger and use her natural creativity to keep the seas safe!

But then Nixie gets matched with Rip — a super-speedy seapony who’s at the top of his class, but also a strict rule-follower. Rip and Nixie couldn’t be more different!

Will Nixie be able to befriend Rip…or will she have to look for another fish in the sea?

{My thoughts} – This is a fun new mermaid book for young children. Nixie is a about to be able to join the Royal Mermaid Rescue Crew like all the others in her class. In order to join the Royal Mermaid Rescue Crew she has got to choose a seapony that she’d like to have as her partner at the upcoming ceremony.

Nixie isn’t sure who she wants for her seapony. What she does know is who she is sure she doesn’t want as her partner. When the ceremony takes place she ends up being the last to choose, and with the seapony that she didn’t want to be partnered with. She tries to be the better persona and tries to make the best out of it, but Rip makes it really hard for her.

I really liked this book. It was a fast read and it helps to show children that it is possible to find friendship and some of the most unlikely individuals. It also shows children that it is a good idea to try and get to know someone before completely making your mind up about them, because in the end they might just surprise you!

I recommend this book for any child that enjoys reading about mermaids and seaponys. It’s a bonus if they enjoy reading about princesses as well, since Nixie is a mermaid princess.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
