Ingo – Helen Dunmore. A thrilling story about a child who discovers the world of the merpeople…and that the fairytale view of ‘mermaids’ could not be more wrong. Beneath the Cornish sea lies a mysterious and dangerous society. She and her brother have a critical role to play there, but they can never feel safe, not least because the beguiling world of Ingo means they risk leaving their lives on land behind forever. Helen Dunmore is an adult novelist and poet, and this is beautifully written with an exciting storyline.
