I like to think she is reading "Wet Magic" by E. Nesbit, surely the funniest story about mermaids ever written.
An Indian Christmas angel in a red and gold sari
A freshwater mermaid sits in a lily pond, enjoying a light snack.
The mermaid eyes a goldfish with a slight smile,dropping fishbones onto a lily pad table.
A happy hairy fairy sowing spores of magic toadstools
Hovering over a magic lily-pond
A duck is astonished to fly into the middle of an airborne fairy ballet class
detail of Duck meets Fairy Ballet Class
of Duck meets Fairy Ballet Class
A scenario that is all too well-known to every parent of a school-age child, and yet so little represented within the sphere of fine art!

I did the three kitchen fairy paintings on tiles, and they are now stuck up on the wall above my kitchen sink.
