The Singing Mermaid

One day, the singing mermaid is tempted away from all of her sea creature friends and her peaceful home at Silversands to go away and join a travelling circus.

The audience love to hear her sing but, instead of the swimming pool that she was promised, she is kept in a small tank by the wicked circus master Sam Sly.

Will she ever escape, and who will help her along the way?
