Waterstones Says

Sophie Dahl’s first foray into children’s writing is a charming confection, as winningly eccentric as her grandfather’s work was gleefully grotesque. With typically stylish illustrations from Lauren O’Hara, this tale of gently suspicious characters at a coastal resort is a beautifully judged debut.

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 only be one answer, Mabel decides ... this guest is a SUPERVILLAIN.
