Cora is a small mermaid with a BIG personality. But like so many mermaids in the third grade, she is struggling to truly be herself.

She wants to be like the Singing Sirens, the most glamorous swim team in the sea. Unfortunately, an annoying road--er, seablock--keep getting in her way.

When Cora fails her spelling test, her coach says she can’t be on the team unless she gets an A on the next one!

Can Cora conquer her spelling test, make the swim team, AND stay true to herself at the same time?

    This book is great! I like mermaids and Third Grade Mermaid is about a really funny mermaid named Cora. Cora is really funny. She thought there was a trick to learn spelling words. So she asked her friends what is the trick to spelling, and they had no idea what she was talking about. Everyone knows you need to study to get better at spelling. It was hilarious that she thought there was a magic way to be a better speller. I also like that her friends support her like friends should! This has to do when one of the other mermaids was bullying her. Way to go friends! One of my favorite parts of the book is when she find a GIGANTIC shrimp and brings it home; and then her brother gets an allergic reaction. She did not know he was allergic to exoskeleton animals.

            Third Grade Mermaid is a very fun book that I read to my brothers and they really enjoyed it! I also enjoyed it. It's not really as like a girl book but a good read aloud kind of book.

              the Third Grade Mermaid was a great book when I read it. I don't like mermaids but I like the story of the mermaid in this story.

                The third grade mermaid is a good book when i read it. When i first looked at it it looked like a boring book but later when i read it it was fun.

                      I really enjoyed this book. The main character is Nikki and she has to go to school and learn spelling words. I really like that she has a giant shrimp for a pet.
