If a kitten hates the water ... can it come to love a mermaid? Find out in this story about setting goals, problem-solving, and (eventually) making friends.

Cadence is a very busy little mermaid--dancing with dolphins in the morning and practicing Tai Chi at the lighthouse in the afternoon--but something is missing. She really wants a kitten

When she discovers a family of felines onshore, Cadence can't believe her luck. But, as the mermaid tries to play with one of the kittens, she soon discovers that cats do not like water and are very pointy in all the wrong places. Ouch

With her kitten dreams dashed, Cadence couldn't be sadder. Is there a pet out there that can love her and the sea? Maybe there's one right under her fin

From author Judith L. Roth and artist Jaclyn Sinquett, Cadence and Kittenfish: A Mermaid Tale reminds us to follow our hearts and our fins--and be ready for some surprises
