KIRKUS REVIEW

In Carroll's latest cuddly-cute story without words, a baby mermaid and a dolphin romp in a confection-colored blue, green and coral underwater Eden -- juggling starfish and sea horses and employing an obliging octopus as maypole, pinwheel and hairdresser. Human divers, litterers and fisher men periodically interrupt the idyll but are successfully foiled each time, leaving the innocent revelers -- mermaid, dolphin, octopus and turtle -- to their frolic. A fanciful depiction of unspoiled nature, to say the most.
