A Match for A Mermaid - Pop Up

A Match for A Mermaid

Written by debut author Eleanor Cullen, illustrated by David Roberts

A picky princess rejects a string of eligible suitors in this hilarious, genre-busting tale about same-sex union and choosing to love who you want.

This fun rhyming fable with a twist is Eleanor Cullen’s first published book, selected from hundreds of entries to win Pop Up’s 10th birthday writing competition. Clothbound and hardback, it’s beautifully illustrated by bestselling children’s book artist, David Roberts.
