When a day at the beach reveals Lena’s secret worries, her smile goes away. Even ice cream doesn’t make it better! So Luka sets out to find something – or someone – to help . . .
From the author and illustrator team behind the much-loved Unicorn! comes a brand new adventure about friendship, the wonders of the sea and how the ocean can seem a little scary sometimes – until you go swimming with a mermaid.
About the Author

She is a famously mad aunt, nanna and mother who talks to herself out loud and falls over a lot in the garden. Maggie writes stories with heart and soul for children and adults that encourage kindness, hope and resilience.
Maggie is the author or Unicorn! and Mermaid! published by Affirm Press.
