Hott Synopsis

A very different kind of mermaid story for a very different child.

Finnoor is a bit different. Instead of the lovely and shiny scales all of the other mermaids have, Finnoor has fur. Not just any fur – but frizzy fur.

Maybe, just maybe, Finnoor will earn that being different is a wonderful thing.

Hott Review

What I liked: We all really enjoyed reading Finnoor’s tail tale and the pictures were absolutely gorgeous.
What I didn’t like: It didn’t rhyme! I adore Ms. Dweck’s lyrical poetry!
