< BACKA Match for a Mermaid David Roberts & Eleanor Cullen AUTHOR >

AGES: 7-10

A picky princess rejects a string of eligible suitors in this hilariously illustrated underwater tale about choosing to love who you want.

A Match for a Mermaid is a genre-busting fable about same-sex union and defying convention.

Edited by Libby Hamilton at Andersen Press and art directed by Jane Buckley at Simon & Schuster.

The original illustrated story is a part of the 10 Stories to Make a Difference: a collection: ten original illustrated stories for young readers, all inspired by the theme of Difference. The collection features a mix of well-known and emerging writers and illustrators, giving a platform to untold stories and diverse new voices. Proceeds from sales supports Pop Up’s work in deprived schools, marginalised communities, and with talented aspiring and emerging writers and illustrators.
