Waterstones Says

With typically stylish illustrations from Lauren O’Hara, this tale of gently suspicious characters at a coastal resort is a beautifully judged first foray into children’s writing. 

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Her drawings are completely beautiful… It’s so magical and the words and the drawings really do weave together in this symbiosis which completely transported me when I read it to be being read to as a kid [...] I had completely forgotten what it’s like when you find a story that’s so vivid and imaginative and the pictures and the words align so perfectly that you literally every night feel that you are stepping into a page with your mum. - Dolly Alderton, The High Low Podcast

My favourite contemporary kids’ author[..] - Editor's Letter, Evening Standard Magazine

Illustrated with airy, light-hearted charm by Lauren O’Hara…This longer-form picture book taps astutelyinto the imaginative life of an adventurous child. - The Guardian Review

Dahl’s engaging style – teamed with Lauren O’Hara’s gorgeous illustrations – make it a book to remember. - Press Association (SYNDICATED)

This is a charming story about unexpected friendships and the power of imagination. - minitravellers.co.uk
