Mermaids Beattie, Mimi and Zelda's summer on land with temporary legs is going swimmingly --- until they receive a strange message ordering them to return home at once. The beloved queen of the Hidden Lagoon has been fishnapped, and some seriously bad mermaids have taken over instead! Now, the girls are the only ones who can stop them. If they're going to save the day, they'll need a clam car, some piranha-print nail polish and possibly a talking seahorse named Steve. Can they do it?

Young witch Tiga Whicabim is just starting to settle into glitzy Ritzy City when Fran the Fabulous Fairy discovers that Tiga's best friend Peggy has gone missing --- leaving behind only a note explaining that she's “AWAY WITH THE FAIRIES” and evil Felicity Bat is now in charge. Soon after, other witches across town start to disappear. Tiga and her friends set out to investigate and stumble upon an old, unsolved mystery that might just be the reason behind the disappearances. Can the girls use their witchy skills to save their friend and the city in time?

When Fran the Fabulous Fairy turns up in Tiga Whicabim's shed to tell her she's a witch, Tiga doesn't believe her. Or at least not until Fran points out that TIGA WHICABIM is actually an anagram of I AM A BIG WITCH...and takes Tiga through the drainpipes to compete in a challenge to crown the next Top Witch of Ritzy City. No one expects a witch from "above the pipes" to be a serious contender, but soon Tiga and her new best friend, Peggy Pigwiggle, are at the head of the pack! Does one of them have what it takes to win?
