Melia the mermaid gives young Beatrice a magic shell that allows her to breathe and see under water. Then together the girls explore an undersea coral jungle, meet mysterious deep-sea fish that glow in the dark, encounter sea horses, ancient turtles, a moray eel, a giant squid, and many more of the ocean’s wonders. Later, they enter Neptune’s kingdom, and Beatrice discovers that Neptune, king of the sea, is Melia’s father. This charming, color-illustrated storybook comes boxed with a little mermaid doll, a comb and mirror, a shell collection, a large “magic” shell like the one Melia gave to Beatrice, and glittering replica jewels like those in the story. The collection of ocean souvenirs are certain to delight every little girl who receives her own Little Box of Mermaid Treasures.
