Jemma, a spunky and spirited mermaid, loves living in her ocean world. Whether exploring for treasure or swimming along with her many marine friends, she delights in the beautiful underwater landscape and bountiful sea life that surrounds her. But one day, darkness encompasses her home and as she swims off to investigate this mystery, she bumps up against the huge problem above her -- a giant floating island of trash! Not knowing how to solve this far-reaching dilemma by herself, she calls together all the sea life and Mer tribes of the world and, as a group, they hatch a plan to clean-up the mess. In a delightful and hopeful tale, this beautifully-illustrated story tackles a timely and important environmental issue and how to solve it through the help of community.
An important book for inspiring ocean conservation and awareness of how plastics and trash are effecting our oceans and sea life with a positive message of how one individual can bring together a community to help clean it up!
Recommended for ages 4-9 and lovers of the oceans and mermaids of all ages
