It’s wee storytime again and we’re off to the seaside.
Come on, sit back, wriggle your toes into the sand.
Never mind the towel or the sunscreen, just let your mind wander from all mundane concerns to ponder the depths of the deep blue sea.
Together we’ll take a peek at our enticingly dangerous neighbours: Mermaids.
