Synopsis: Everyone agrees --- there's something fishy about the Flots! Toby can't remember a time he didn't live at the seaside hotel. Left there as a small baby, he's grown up without a lot of friends. So when he meets Eliza Flot down by the pier, he takes to her, well, like a fish to water. And when he meets her parents, that tips the scales even more. He practically becomes part of the family. So what if they're mermaids? But Toby's friendship with Eliza arouses suspicion back at the hotel, and soon he has to hatch a plan to keep the Flot's identity a secret. That's when he comes up with the ingenious idea to disguise them as hotel guests, with unexpected - and hilarious - results. From talented newcomer Heather Dyer comes a big-hearted story that younger readers are sure to fall for hook, line, and sinker.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5–Toby, an orphan, has lived in a seaside hotel since he was left there as a baby. Mr. Harris, the manager, allows him to stay on but makes him sleep in the attic and work to earn his keep. It is a lonely life for Toby until the day he meets a young mermaid named Eliza Flot on the beach. She takes him to the cave where her family has lived since all of the other mermaids went away and introduces him to her mother and father. Toby falls in love with the Flots and is touched by their kindness to him. When treasure seekers invade the beach, the mermaids' hiding place is jeopardized. With the help of a retired captain and Margot, Mr. Harris's elderly relative, Toby hides the Flots in the hotel by disguising them as wheelchair-bound guests. Before long, the manager suspects that something is amiss, and it is a race against time as Toby and his accomplices try to get the family to safety before Mr. Harris can reveal the truth to the media. Amusing black-and-white sketches depict the action. Toby is a charming and likable character. However, although the premise is promising, the story never reaches its full potential. Mr. Harris is a very flat character and many of the others are stereotypical. The mystery surrounding Toby's past is transparent and will be detected by readers long before the author divulges the secret. A secondary purchase.–Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL
