9780613161947: Serenade of Mermaids

Plunge into the Deep

Beneath the sea, off the shore of Scotland, there waits a beautiful princess cursed to live her life as a seal, except for one night each year. In Japan there lives a sea maiden who can change shape at will to become any underwater creature. And in Switzerland, in the Lake of Zug, there is a mermaid who falls so deeply in love with a human man that she will do anything to keep him beneath the water with her.

Discover an underwater kingdom where these, and many other mermaids from around the world, are waiting to meet you. But be careful--not all mermaids can be trusted...

About the Author :

Shirley Climo's love of folklore began in her childhood and has provided the background for many of her children's books, such as The Korean Cinderella, Magic & Mischief: Tales from Cornwall, A Treasury of Princesses: Princess Tales from Around the World, A Treasury of Mermaids: Mermaid Tales from Around the World, and Someone Saw a Spider: Spider Facts and Folktales, an NCTE Teacher's Choice and Library of Congress Best Children's Book that was originally inspired by her research for Cobweb Christmas. Mrs. Climo and her husband live in Los Altos, California.

Lisa Falkenstern has worked as an illustrator for twenty years, since she graduated from Parsons School of Design. A Treasury of Mermaids is the first book she has illustrated for children. Ms. Falkenstern currently resides in New Jersey.

From School Library Journal :

Grade 3-5Eight folktales from around the world, complete with source notes and introductions that conjure up the mythic milieu of each country. Originally published as a picture book, A Treasury of Mermaids (HarperCollins, 1997), with Jean and Mou-sien Tsengs vibrant full-page paintings, this paperback edition has new artwork and a chapter-book format. The soft pastels from the earlier version have been replaced with framed pen-and-ink drawings. Where the first book featured artwork as an introduction to a tale, here it is integrated midway through the story. While these techniques may help bridge the transition from picture to chapter books, readers lose the fluidity and grace that underlies the tales. While the newer version may satisfy some chapter-book readers, it does not replace the original publication.Tina Hudak, Takoma Park Maryland Library
