At Halo McNightly's school, the swimmers are disappearing from the boys' swim team. No one can figure it out, until Halo stars investigating. A deadly mermaid lives in a cave connected to the school swimming pool. Halo will have to use her special candy to turn into various underwater fauna, such as a hammerhead shark or an octopus, to defeat the hungry girl-fish!

Another great adventure in the Princess Candy series. I like how this superhero is just another kid who was given the gift of some superpowers. And she doesn’t have to be burdened with them all of the time. If she needs something, she just eats a piece of the candy and she has a new superpower. What a handy thing these candies are! Again, there are some great resources in this book for teachers – the discussion questions, writing prompts and glossary. Students will again get a kick out of the Villain Facts and more Princess Puzzlers! This book is another great looking graphic novel that will appeal to children.
