From the loremaster who brought us THE SECRET HISTORY OF GIANTS comes an intriguing new chronicle revealing the mysterious ways of merfolk.Since ancient times, seafarers and coast-dwellers the world over have reported encounters with merpeople. You may remember in my Strawberry post that I talked about how much I fancy Kathe Kruse dolls. And for more all-things-mermaid lovely, check out Chasing Fireflies – they have an entire mermaid section that is fairly comprehensive in its iridescent glory! Where you can find the best book at the right reading level and spark (or fuel) a life long love of reading in your kids!
Once again, the remarkable academics of Professor Ari Berk and multifaceted artistry that made The Secret History of Giants a treasure of a book come together to bring us The Secret History of Mermaids and Creatures of the Deep, another look into the archives of the Order of the Golden Quills.
The book begins by discussing the origins of the merfolk and Atargatis, as imagined by Virginia Lee, whose name may mean "the goddess fish, Atar." Known as the Sea Mother, the Bright One or the Star that Fell to Sea, she is considered the mother of all merfolk and her name is venerated in the deepest zones.
There are many, many other fascinating aspects of undersea life described in this book, including a map of merfolk sightings, sea zones and hazards, stories of encounters with sea folk and a passage on the dark history of merfolk in captivity.
For any child (or adult) with a rich fantasy life rooted in fairy tales and folklore, The Secret History of Mermaids and Creatures of the Deep (as well as The Secret History of Giants) is a MUST. Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff - Projects You Can Build For (and With) Kids!
I tell you all this because I think it is remarkable to know the academics and artistry that go into this gem of a book, especially if you have never had the chance to read one of the original 'Ologies books and their knock-offs. While this book does not have the envelopes and tactile specimens like dragon dust that can be found in the 'Ologies books, it does have flaps, booklets and gatefold pages (that open into a four page spread) and a tassel that hangs off the spine, all richly and gorgeously illustrated.
Don't miss this other phenomenal book from Professor Berk with yet another amazing cast of illustrators, The Secret History of Mermaids!


That Spiderwick book was amazing, and I didn't even really like the two original books that I read.
Yes, we liked Jimmy Zangwow, but our library doesn't have Ted and I never suggested it for purchase. This file contains additional information, probably added from the digital camera or scanner used to create or digitize it.
If the file has been modified from its original state, some details may not fully reflect the modified file.
While I think that many of Michael Kors boot offerings are bordering on the obscene side of high-heeled ridiculousness. Variously known as Finfolk, Dinny Mara, Nereids, Blue Men, and Merrymaids, merfolk have been the source of both gifts and disasters for humankind. I got it from my schools librarian(she loves me), she got it for her younger girls who love mermaids but she didn't want to show topless mermaids to them.
It taps into that most favorite of Childhood Dreams – the Magical Secret Friend known only to you.
Spiderwick's Field Guide totally rocked her world, becoming a gateway into all sorts of fantasy. DeTerlizzi has been amazing, responding to the girls when they sent him fan art and sending back signed drawings and all kinds of goodies. Sea Magick- working with the energy of the ocean- will deepen your connection with your innermost self. Now a lavishly illustrated resource offers insight into the lives, origins, language, and magic of these elusive peoples.


It has great "info" if you like to learn about mythology!!!(and I love to learn and read about mythology)!! When I was a little girl, I remember spending a lot of time submerging myself in a swimming pool trying to fan out my hair so it would look floaty like a mermaid. However, I found some of her mermaid dolls that were a.) IN STOCK and b.) somewhere in the realm of reasonable! Like a siren’s song, this fascinating tome is sure to enthrall all who fall under its spell. I found comfort in finding these special friends in books, which I suppose is the true enchantment of literature.
The Secret History of Mermaids and Creatures of the Deep begins with this admonition, "Pollution of the world's waters and depletion of fish populations have led to growing tensions between merfolk and humans. Lots of fairy tale references (perhaps a little too referential, actually) and an overt nod to the inspiration of The Reluctant Dragon. Whatever it is, I think it’s been pretty well established that the mermaid continues to have enduring appeal in literature, art, film.
The story behind the pew is marvelous and retold in The Secret History of Mermaids and Creatures of the Deep.
