To Catch a MermaidEverything goes haywire in the Broom household after 12-year-old Boom Broom brings home a magical baby mermaid. To Catch a Mermaid is a humorous fantasy novel for the middle grades, with illustrations by Catia Chen.

Excerpt:

"The blue-green tail arched, then smashed Mertyle's box of rye crisp that she snacked on while watching game shows. It arched again and thwacked the wall, leaving a trail of green slime. What was that thing? A green hand reached out and felt along the bedding until it found a piece of rye crisp. The cracker disappeared into the mass of seagrass, and an unmistakable chomping sound filled the room, followed by a little underwater burp. It was hungry."
