A shark has been spotted in Trident City! Pearl Swamp is so scared, she needs a shark Guard to escort her to and from school. She doesn't trust anyone who likes these terrifying creatures, especially Kiki Coral, who isn't nearly as frightened as Pearl. And to make matters worse, Pearl accuses Kiki of stealing her precious pearl necklace! Will the sharks destroy the peace of their sparking city? Or will the mergirls have to swim in dangerous deep-sea waters?
Oh my Neptune!" Pearl Swamp shrieked as she swam into the huge front hallway of Trident Academy. "Did you see the newspaper this morning?"
Wanda Slug, Pearl's good friend, shook her head. "No, I didn't," she said. "I had to finish my homework before school." The two mergirls floated out of the way of some fourth-grade merboys who zoomed past them.
Trident Academy was a prestigious school in Trident City. Third-grade through tenth-grade merkids came from all over the ocean to study in the enormous clamshell. The front hall alone was big enough for a humpback whale to take a nap in.
Pearl's blond hair and long strand of pearls swirled in the water as merstudents rushed around her to get to their classrooms. "My dad made me read the front page," she told Wanda. "You'll never believe it! There have been shark sightings in Trident City!"
"What?" Wanda gasped. "Are you kidding? That's terrible." Sharks were the number one danger to the merpeople community.
Pearl's green eyes widened. "I'm serious. I couldn't even swim here by myself. My father hired a Shark Patrol Guard to escort me to and from school."
Wanda shuddered. "I'm glad I live in the Trident Academy dorm. I wouldn't want to be swimming home with a shark on my tail." Both girls looked at their own mertails and wiggled them gently. Neither girl noticed that the front hall was almost empty of merstudents.
Pearl's fear of sharks is not unfounded - but can she find a way to feel safe in this Mermaid Tales adventure?
Late-breaking news from the Trident City Tide: There have been shark sightings in Trident City! No swimming alone! Pearl's father even hires a Shark Guard to escort her to school. Pearl starts stirring up lots of trouble with anything that has to do with sharks, even denouncing the skeleton Kiki has in her room. And then, to make matters worse, Pearl accuses Kiki of stealing her precious pearl necklace! And though the undersea waters are indeed filled with danger, Pearl just might discover that true friends can provide a sense of safety!
