In these three stand-alone stories, mermaids are having exciting adventures:
Mermaid Enya really wants someone to play with. Her wish comes true when she rescues a boy in distress at sea.
Maila and Undine are upset about all the garbage in the lake. Particularly bad are two boys who keep camping near the lake. The mermaids hatch a plan and chase away the boys.
Trying to find the most beautiful place of all, water nymph Yara goes out into the big wide world and experiences many exciting things. But it soon becomes clear that, actually, the most beautiful place in the world is home.
