Book review: "Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia"

We have a few hundred children's books in our house. "Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia" is probably the most baffling and convoluted among them.

The entire story is only 15 pages, yet in that space we are introduced to 12 different fairy or animal characters, including "an adorable turtle named Tutu" who is introduced once and never mentioned again.

We are taken to five different places, such as the Bogs of the Hinterland and the Depths of Despair. And we learn of five different magical items, including the Immunity Berry, Magic Seaweed and the Mirror of the Mist.

It's just too much thrown together in too little space. It's an almost incomprehensible story.
