We have read several of these stories and are sorry they are out of print. My daughter loves this book, just as much as the others in the Barbie series. Easy to read, large text, and descriptions of words that may be new to the reader.
Age range not stated. Pictorial hardcover without dustjacket, 55 pages. Part of the Barbie and Friends Book Club. Barbie and her mermaid friends and family believe that humans are dangerous and therefore keep their distance.
Barbie admits to being curious about humans, but stays away mostly because Midge is so concerned about the idea. When Barbie's old friends, the Orca family, pass through, they invite her to join them in the waters of the Far North. Excited, Barbie asks her friends to keep an eye on Stacie and Kelly and heads north.
There, she meets new animal friends, particularly Dawn, a baby seal, and Eva, a human who Barbie helps when her kayak is overturned. When Dawn goes missing and Barbie sees her caught in a fishing net, Barbie calls on Eva for help. Once Dawn is again safe at home, all the animals, Barbie and Eva get to know each other and find that they're not all that different after all, a message that Barbie takes back home to share with the other mermaids.
Personally, I find the ever-changing "career" if we pretend that "mermaid" is a career, lol of Barbie in these books to be hilarious and stupid at the same time. But these books are not written for me, so that's one place where my opinion really doesn't matter. The series is aimed at young girls who play with Barbies and for whom the message of Barbie's multitude of career possibilities is "you can grow up to be anything! The story is cute and the photos are a nice addition to the tale.
The fantasy angle seems a bit off the usual, realistic, stories that I've read The Crack In The Sea - Various - Friends And Friends Of Friends this set, which is a pleasant change. This would make a nice story to read for days like Earth Day.
As always, the racial diversity of the dolls is great, I only wish that the author had made the choice of mentioning that Eva and her family are Native American. It seemed like it would have been fitting, considering the context. Still, a good story with a nice moral, tucked inside an effort to sell The Crack In The Sea - Various - Friends And Friends Of Friends kid more dolls.
