Visit the Vancouver Aquarium today. Look in EVERY tank--did you find a mermaid?
Side A: This page is my favorite. The mermaid did take about 5 hours, but it was totally worth it. Each mermaid tale scale is a hand sewn vintage sequin.
Little purple octopus. I was once told by my, at the time 10 year old nephew, that purple octopuses don't exist. That's probably true, but they do exist in this soft book.
the octopus tentacles detach at the buttons for more squiggly fun.
