Sibéal Pounder

Lovely talented author Sibéal Pounder is well-known for her witty and original Witch Wars Adventures series.

Her first book, Witch Wars, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2016. It was followed by 5 more in this well-loved series, but now it’s all about the mermaids…

The Bad Mermaids stories are Sibéal's latest project and we're delighted that this Wychwood she'll be celebrating Bad Mermaids on Thin Ice, her brand new book which is the third in the series.

In the kingdom of Frostopia, mermaids Beattie, Mimi and Zelda have come to the aid of Maritza Mist, a famous water witch who supplies magic spells to the underwater kingdoms.

Two notoriously bad mermaids have escaped from Viper View prison and stolen Maritza's map that shows the locations of twelve magical objects. When brought together, these objects will create the most powerful water witch the world has ever known. Beattie, Mimi and Zelda set off to travel the underwater kingdoms to stop them…

If you love great stories, witches and mermaids join Sibéal at this fab interactive event.
