Publisher's Summary

A timeless story celebrating friendship and imagination, from an exciting new voice in children's literature.   

Mabel lives with her parents in The Mermaid Hotel, by the sea. Mabel likes to keep an eye on the comings and goings of all the guests.    

Then one day a particularly in-ter-est-ing 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. And why does no one know her real name?    

There can be only one answer, Mabel decides...this guest is a supervillain. But even supervillains have a soft side, and as an unlikely friendship grows between the pair, their fantastical exploits take them well beyond the corridors of their seaside home.   

Fall in love with this enchanting audiobook, which includes a title track, co-written and performed by Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum.

Lacking Sparkle

This children's story was too complex for my little girl. she got lost in. I listened to it all, it is incredibly short. I felt the plot needed development apart from the main characters little happens in the actual story. Perhaps this will be better as part of a series, when actual adventure takes place?
