    1. When I was little, my mom took me to the library and I remember checking out this book. And I LOVED it. I owe Jane Yolen many thanks for why I love mermaids so much today even still. I didn't remember every detail of this book, but enough stuck with me as I grew up and thought and dreamed about mermaids that I knew I wanted my own copy.This is not an easy book to acquire. Unfortunately it's out of print, and I had to buy it from a 3rd party seller for a bit of a markup. This is the story of 12-y [...]

    2. as a kid in late 80s and early 90s, there weren't a lot of mermaid stories available to me. for some reason mermaids didn't get the detailed treatment that fairies and elves and trolls and dragons got in fiction. they weren't a type of fantasy creature that might have an interesting culture or a specific biology. in my childhood, mermaids were still simply fables or symbols, never detailed fantasy beings. this was the only other mermaid story, besides The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderso [...]

    3. What a wonderful tale. A mermaid child is fun and silly she likes to jump through the waves but one day she is seen, and banished.

Her gills are gone and now there i [...]

    4. Is there any greater bibliophilic joy than rereading a favorite childhood book and finding it just as delightful as you remember it to be? I think not. This was the book that made me realize I have the soul of a mermaid. The one that made me love the mystery of the sea and shore. I haven't read it in DECADES, partly because I was afraid it wouldn't stand the test of time. I am happy to report that it does. Ever since a close encounter with a shark (i.e. we bodysurfed the same wave) 10 years ago, [...]

    5. I got this book from my school's library when they were having a book sale. I had never read it before then, but it is one that I still have with the hopes that, if I someday have children, it will be one they read and love too.
