    One thought on “Mermaids Most Amazing”

    1. Informational: This was kind of a fun informational text. It was about different cultures and countries who had tales of mermaids. It explained where these tales would have come from and what animals they might have mistaken for mermaids. It was a fun read!

    2. Great illustrations, not sure about the info dump at the beginning of the book, especially when some of that information is repeated in the tales. Enjoyed the reports of mermaid sightings and historical perspective of the legends.

    3. A thorough examination of the concept of mermaids Through science, mythology, literature, and art. Good fit with Kelly Milner Hall titles about cryptids and other weirdness.
