Dryers and Clams
by Chantal Leipsig

Coral is a young mermaid who lives off the coast of South Africa. Her biggest wish is to be a hairstylist, but when she starts hairdressing school, it isn’t easy at first. Told within the colourful, underwater backdrop of Coral’s home, Dryers and Clams is an enchanting story of a dedicated mermaid determined to reach her goals. With the help of Octalia the octopus, Doreen the dolphin, Gugu the mermaid, and her loving family, Coral learns that it’s okay to make mistakes—as long as you never give up on your dreams.
