Naughty and nice, real and fictional, the menagerie of creatures included in this book run the gamut of world mythologies and cultures. This little encyclopedia features more than 90 famous mermaids including:

  • Little Mermaid—everyone's favorite mermaid princess, who gives up her voice for a chance at love
  • Ningyo—a gruesome sea creature from Japanese folkore that can bring dangerous storms and other misfortune
Filled with tales of star-crossed mermaids and vengful sea gods and goddesses, this information-packed guide includes gorgeous line drawings throughout.
