The Malones are spending a week on a houseboat on Lake Travis. Poppy befriends a mermaid girl named Nina who, in human form, moves in with the Malones in order to observe them. When Franny unwittingly tampers with mermaid magic and is transformed into a mermaid herself, it's up to Poppy, of course, to save the day.

Praise For A Mischief of Mermaids

Praise for A Gaggle of Goblins: “A satisfying tale for skeptical tweens, who will eagerly await Poppy’s further adventures.”
-ALA Booklist

Praise for A Gaggle of Goblins: “Two worlds collide in this jaunty and easily digestible story of magic and domestic mayhem.”
-The Horn Book

Praise for A Gaggle of Goblins: “The book shines through the consistently amusing dynamics and dialogue among the Malones; Harper has abundant fun with the Malone parents’ eccentricities, and kids will too. Readers will want more from this family.”
