What do you get when you cross a mermaid with a unicorn? A mermicorn! Flip-Flap Friends: Mermicorns is a hands-on board book full of split pages to flip and flap, creating fantastical combinations! Flip the flaps to match a rainbow-scaled mermaid tail to a sapphire-maned unicorn, or combine rainbow hoofs with a bubble-beard merman! Youngsters will be entertained by the silly and bright illustrations as they use their imaginations to create their own magical creatures.
