Corinne and her buddies are back in this continuation of the Jumbies series. But this one takes us on a new adventure, under the water!
This book is just as cute as the first and just as imaginative as well. It is also written just as well which of course you would expect coming from the same author.
I did notice that this is not a stand-alone book however and if you haven't read Book #1 in the series you probably wouldn't understand some of the beginning of this book. The action quickly picks up however and the reader is taken off on the adventure.
Most of the old characters come back in this second edition to the series. However there are a lot of new characters introduced as well. My personal favorite would have to be Mama D'Leau who is probably one of the most badass mermaids I've ever read about.
I also wanted to say that somehow this author has pulled this story off to where it comes off as an old familiar legend. I feel as if I have heard a story similar to this one so many times before but yet this is presented to me in such a new fashion that it is anything but boring. The author's writing style makes the characters just come alive.
I would definitely recommend this book as a part of the series but not a standalone, and I am very much anticipating the third installment to these books.
