Each of King Neptune's 50 mermaid daughters boasts a special talent, except for little Minnow, who seems to be good only at asking questions. When she finds a strange object -- a red shoe that has fallen from above -- Minnow follows her questions to a wondrous place and finds answers, including the answer to the most important question of all: Who am I? Filled with Campbell’s watercolor and pencil crayon illustrations, this gorgeous story about finding one's purpose will captivate young readers.

"Campbell's illustrations employ ample blues and grays to portray deep waters of the sea. The mermaids are all identical, with fair skin, white hair, and thin bodies. It is only when Minnow catches a glimpse of the human world that the pages become vibrant with hues of red, yellow, and orange. This book is suitable for independent reading as well as a read-aloud. Minnow's tale will remind readers that it is okay to ask questions and seek answers, to stand out and be unique." -- H. Islam, School Library Journal
