Jodi Picoult, the best-selling author of My Sister’s Keeper, is one of the first major authors to publish a story with Amazon’s Kindle in Motion — and it looks like something straight out of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Multiple pages of Picoult’s Mermaid feature captivating moving images that go along with the story — everything from a full-sized, swimming mermaid to simpler, quieter scenes like rolling waves or rippling water in a pool.

“Once, Hope Payne was a mermaid, performing at the local theme park and captivating audiences young and old,” the book’s official description reads. “Today, she’s married to a pragmatic marine biologist who has filled the pool in their backyard with flounder for a special study. Before he begins, the fish vanish—echoing a loss Hope alone can understand. She senses there’s something underwater, something alive and hungry for more, but is she in too deep to ever resurface?”

Below, check out some of the stunning interior images from Mermaid, which is available for purchase now.
