Written as a lost notebook penned by a young marine biologist over 100 years ago, author Emily Hawkins invites you into the pages of A Natural History of Mermaids like a best friend sharing their biggest, juiciest secret – the existence of mermaids!
Read accounts of sightings from all all around the world, learn how to tell the difference between a Merrow and a Caribbean Queen, and immerse yourself in lush habitats such as mangrove swamps, seagrass meadows, and coral reefs – but do watch out for the Angler Mer of the midnight zone!
Jessica Roux’s stunning illustrations are a joy to pore over, bringing detail, colour and texture to a hitherto unexplored world.
This comprehensive field guide tells you everything you need to know about merfolk history, culture and customs. Mermaid enthusiasts, young and old, will delight in its beautiful pages. Most importantly, however, the more you know about these secretive beings, the better equipped you are to spot one – so you might want to pay attention to the handy Merfolk Sign Language guide on p.28, in case you ever need to greet a mermaid in the wild!
