Mermaid Warrior Squad
From the Series Lorimer Illustrated Humor
Shy Dylan arrives at a summer arts camp and immediately bonds with outgoing Coral over the aquatic theme of the camp and a love of comic books. The two girls plan a comic about lifeguards who are transformed into mermaids and fight for eco-justice in the sea. The mermaid warriors become Dylan and Coral’s alter egos. But when Coral’s in-your-face behavior draws the attention of the camp mean girls and a boy who is determined to prank the camp’s final show, Dylan has a decision to make. Should she stay behind the scenes, or should she channel her inner mermaid warrior to save Coral and the show?
Using illustrations throughout, this book combines humorous text with an exciting comic-book adventure.
