Mabel: A Mermaid Fable

Mabel isn't like the other mermaids; they all have lovely mustaches, and her face is completely bare. Lucky isn't like the other octopuses; he only has seven tentacles. Both of them feel like there's something wrong with them, and like they'll never fit in. 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 a lovely and laugh-out-loud picture book about being yourself. Kids will giggle at Mable's attempts to conceal her mustache-free face, from a seaweed falsie to a shell on her nose! Full of vibrant illustrations of Mabel's undersea world, kids will dive in to this story of self-acceptance and friendship.

"Coupled with her open-hearted consideration, Mabel’s sideways glances of embarrassment and dismay offer a winning vulnerability. 'Nudibranch!' is the bullying cry of Mabel’s peers, and Watkins’s artful renditions of these beautiful sea slugs, undersea corals, and other marine life provide visual fireworks that amplify the story’s compassionate message." — Publishers Weekly
