The Unseen World of Poppy Malone #3: A Mischief of MermaidsI have to admit I haven’t read either of the first two books in this series (The Unseen World of Poppy Malone). But they’ve gotten wonderful reviews, and this seems like a super-fun concept. Poppy Malone (she’s 9 years old) ventures out into the vampire, fairy, goblin, and ghost-filled universe with her parents (they are paranormal investigators). Poppy apparently brings a scientific approach to her parents work. She’s also got a twin brother, an older sister, and a baby in the family. In this edition (A Mischief of Mermaids), the family’s baby gets transformed into a mermaid, and Poppy’s got to figure out how to turn her back (into a baby).

I’ve added this to the list of stories to read at bedtime with my many 8-to-12 year olds.
