"It is rare for enuresis to be the subject of a picture book - even rarer that the book should be such an enchanting one. Cecilia is a clever four-year-old but she has one problem: every morning her bed is wet. In a dream one night she meets a little mermaid who, after a magical playtime, convinces Cecelia that she will soon be dry. After all, the little mermaid's bed is always wet, being under the sea. Besides, the Queen probably wet her throne when she was only four! Cecelia wakes up dry on the morning after her adventures. Wonderfully dainty, watery, watercolour illustrations are an excellent match for the melodic rhymes. The bed-wetting facts are told in small print, rather like a printed whisper. One can only wish that other "problem" books for children had the same originality and charm."
