The Little Mermaid’s Little Sister — TYA

The Little Mermaid’s Little Sister — TYA

by Jennifer L. Reck

(Perfect for any professional, amateur or educational group performing for children or young people.)

The Little Mermaid gives up her voice to become human for the Prince, but the Prince wants to be a fish. Nothing makes sense on land or sea until the Little Mermaid’s Little Sister takes on the Sea Witch to make things right. Along the way she is helped by her sea dog, Finn, held hostage by a mischievous swarm of eels, and plays a friendly game of Hearts.
