BOOK REVIEW: Mermaids – Magical Guide to the Underwater Realm
Author: Claire Hawcock
Publisher: Carlton Books
Release Date: March 2011
Down at the very bottom of the sea, there’s a magical underwater world filled with secrets, mysteries and
These beautiful creatures are inviting children to come and visit them! This book is their ticket, with every
stunning spread, flap, pop-up and pull-tab revealing an amazing new aspect of mermaid life.
Claire Hancock has written an enchanting book about Merfolks. Patricia Moffett’s illustrations are cute, colourful and imaginative.
The book covers really all aspects of Merfolk life. From the way they look, their eating habits and old fables. I actually think that if a mermaid was socially inept then this book would help them learn about their culture and way of life.
There are pop up sections for the extra entertaining and great for the younger readers. If you boy or girls loves colourful and imaginative books then this is worth buying to entertain them.
