Tilly is a mermaid, and it's her best friend Marina's birthday soon. Tilly wants to find her the perfect present. When she sees a beautiful blue pearl in the spooky Seaweed Forest, she knows exactly what to give Marina - a necklace! But getting the pearl is more difficult than it seems - will Tilly be brave enough to do it?
