Mabel a Mermaid Fable

$16.99 USD

( / )


 A lovely and laugh-out-loud picture book from the award-winning author of Rude Cakes and Most Marshmallows.

A silly read-aloud tale for kids about being yourself! Mabel isn't like the other mermaids. Lucky isn't like the other octopuses. But when they find each other, they discover that true friendship isn't about how you look, and that sometimes what we are searching for is right under our noses.

The inimitable Rowboat Watkins is back with another humorous tale about being true to yourself.




Rowboat Watkins was a recipient of the 2010 Sendak Fellowship, his book Rude Cakes was an Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book, and the New York Times praised his most recent title, Most Marshmallows, as exquisite. Rowboat lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.

★“[D]eft characterization and detailed worldbuilding by Watkins (Most Marshmallows) transcend the formulaic… artful renditions of beautiful sea slugs, undersea corals, and other marine life provide visual fireworks that amplify the story’s compassionate message.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Watkins anchors his congenial fable in friendship and self-acceptance… delightfully illustrated. A treasure worth discovering.”

“[Mabel] is a refreshing story of difference, acceptance, friendship, and self-confidence. A recommended purchase.”
