The Lost Princess (Mermaid Tales Series #5) by Debbie Dadey, Tatevik Avakyan

In this Mermaid Tales adventure, Shelly’s not sure she’s ready to be royalty.

Not one of the merkids in Shelly Siren’s third grade class can believe the shell-shattering news: Shelly is a princess! A real princess! It’s been a deep, dark secret in Trident City, but now everyone knows—and Shelly doesn’t know how to act. Should she start wearing a glittery crown? Or move to a grand undersea palace? Will her friends have to call her Princess Shelly? She knows it’s an exciting turn of events, but Shelly’s not sure she can truly fit the royal part. Can she find a way to be a princess and stay herself?

Reviewed by Kelly Santana for Readers' Favorite The Lost Princess by Debbie Dadey is a tale of a mermaid who struggles to understand her role in the sea world. In the waters of Trident City, Shelly Siren grew up as a normal fry. Like most of her “merfriends,” Shelly liked to explore the ocean and play with the sea animals. That was the way she lived her life until the new school year at Trident Academy started. During a merology class, Shelly found out that her great aunt was a queen. Surprised to know that she was part of the royalty, Shelly demanded answers from her grandfather who, in an attempt to give her a normal life, hid the secret of Shelly´s royal relatives from her. After knowing that she was a princess and the third in line for the Western Ocean crown, Shelly went into despair. She did not want to give up her ordinary life, but at the same time she had to acknowledge her new reality. During this adventure, Shelly learned many lessons on friendship, responsibility, humility, and acceptance in order to make peace with her status of being a royal.  In The Lost Princess, Debbie Dadey did a great job incorporating the story of a little mermaid (Shelly Siren) to a science class under the sea. Shelly could be any girl with many doubts and insecurities. Ms Dadey developed a character, which like many of us, has to deal with various dilemmas, and has to make sound decisions about her life. The book brings valuable lessons about acceptance and responsibility. I loved the illustration, the colorful characters, and the terms the author used to describe them. By incorporating sea creatures in the plot, Ms Dadey contributes to a more enjoyable marine experience. The glossary at the end of the book is another bonus and it certainly helps children understand better some science terminology. It is a great resource to children in grades K-4.
