Statement re: That’s not my mermaid…
We decided, some time ago already, to make changes to our book That’s not my mermaid... Whilst we had included a mermaid of colour with the intention of being more inclusive, we recognised that referencing the mermaid’s hair – calling it “fluffy”, and the concept of touching the hair itself – was problematic. We stopped printings whilst we have been working to change the book, and have also already decided to pulp all stock remaining in our warehouse.
The clothing based on this book is produced by a licensee and was created before we decided to change the book. We are speaking to them about this.
We very much apologise for any upset caused by this earlier edition of this book. We are committed to diverse and inclusive publishing, and take our responsibility to do this appropriately, and sensitively, very seriously.
