(4) Thora and the Green Sea-Unicorn by Gillian Johnson

(4) Thora and the Green Sea Unicorn by Gillian JohnsonBook Type: Novel
Author: Gilian Johnson
Pages: 288

Thora - half-mermaid, half-human - sails to London with her mermaid mother, Cosmo the peacock, and her newest friend, Shirley the sea horse. P. Poutine - a mermaid Cruella de Vil. Pamela will steal anything she can - including Shirley, who's a rare and priceless green dragon sea horse. And when Pamela finds out that Thora has the legendary projectionist's ring, she'll stop at nothing to get her hands on it ...

My Review:
*To read the first book in the Thora series, click HERE.
After reading the first Thora book, I was excited to learn that there are more adventures with the fun-loving half mermaid! Just like the first book in the Thora series, this one continued to make me laugh; Cosmo the peacock gets a rain bonnet since its always rainy in London, and Shirley the sea unicorn is a cunning little creature. She is defiant, curious and totally different and unique! She is also spunky and a bit of a brat, which also makes it funny. She reminds me of an angry buzzing bee when she gets mad. I also loved Louella, Thora's new human friend who has a fascination with the sea, and she is charming even though she is also a bit stuck up.
I also found it interesting that Johnson brings the black market into the book, and how it impacts the ocean, which is a valuable lesson for younger mer-children to learn. Johnson once again makes Thora a remarkably witty character that is clever, loves to help people, and is brilliant and eccentric. Definitely give this book a try if you loved the first Thora book! I give this book (****) 4 stars.
