Fairy Tale Friday

  When Mermaids Sleep by: Ann Bonwill (9780375870613)
       This is an absolutely goregous good night book that's filled with mermaids, pirates, wizards, unicorns, and dragons! Soothing, lyrical text accompanied with lush, textured illustrations.

     Vespa's family want her to become respectable and find a husband, while she would love nothing better than to spend the rest of her life working in her father's museum of unnatural history. Fate may have something else entirely in store for her, however! Vespa and Syrus Reed, the tinker, are trapped in an insidious web of plots and intrigue. A really fascinating mix of mythical creatures, Victorian London, and steampunk!
