There’s more to being a mermaid than exploring coral and chasing your fellow sea creatures. In fact, in Sibéal Pounder’s wildly popular Bad Mermaids series, a mermaid’s life in the kingdom of Frostopia is full of witches, spies, the oldest shark in the world, and seahorses gone rogue.

To celebrate On Thin Ice, the third book of the series, Pounder’s story-telling event teaches kids how to craft their own adventure tale, using zany props and costumes to shape their narrative. If you know a burgeoning writer, this is the perfect event to help them turn their ideas into full-fledged (aquatic-themed!) stories.
