About the book

The Mermaid” is a spin off of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. Rather than a golden hair little girl, we have a curious Mermaid named Kiniro from Japan. The 3 bears are replaced with an Octopus family, and has a surprise ending. The illustration really pull you into the sea!

You can defiantly see the cultural influence Jan brought from visiting the coral reefs of Okinawa Japan.
