It was predicted that they would live only until someone who heard their singing would pass by. Ovid, Metamorphoses 5.
Melville Roman epic C1st B. Yet to reserve that dower of glorious song, their melodies' enchantment, they retained their fair girls' features and their human voice.
Pausanias, Description of Greece 9. Jones Greek travelogue C2nd A. For the story goes that the daughters of Akheloios Achelous were persuaded by Hera to compete with the Mousai Muses in singing.
The Mousai won, plucked out the Seirenes' feathers and made crowns for themselves out of them. Pearse Greek mythographer C1st to C2nd A. The only one to swim off to them was Butes, whom Aphrodite snatched up and settled at Lilybaeum.
The Seirenes, hoping to add the Argonauts to these, made haste to greet them with a liquid melody; and the young men would soon have cast their hawsers on the beach if Thrakian Orpheos Orpheus had not intervened.
Raising his Bistonian lyre, he drew from it the lively tune of a fast-moving song, so as to din their ears with a medley of competing sounds. The girlish voices were defeated by the lure; and the set wind, aided by the sounding backwash from the shore, carried the ship off.
The poor man swam through the dark swell making for the shore, and had he landed, they would soon have robbed him of all hope of reaching home.
I thought there was going to be a great big battle or an epic surprise at the end. The novel does leave an opening for more books but, I am hoping the next graphic novel has more going on.
Jan 20, Tinta rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this graphic novel because of the illustrations and the creative story of a young girl and a special cat who enjoys being in the ocean.
The young girl deals with her grandfather who has dementia and when he wonders away for hours on end, her mother will limit their time at the docks.
However, Trot can't stay away from the water and her surf board so with her trusty, water loving cat, Capt'n Bill, she will sneak out of the house.

Such a fun, and well-illustrated- graphic novel! Surfer girl Trot and her grandfather take care of each other while her mom is at work.
One day while surfing during a coming storm trot's cat, Cap'n Bill, is swept under the water. When she dives to rescue him she discovers an undersea world ruled by an ancient civilization of Sirens.
The story is quite fun! Love the Asian main character! The illustrations bumped it all up to a 5th star. So beautiful. Feb 17, Alina Karapandzich rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels.
So quirky and weird but really fun! I love the illustrations and I love the cat sidekick he's honestly incredible. Plenty of action and mystery but all delivered very quickly and succinctly.
Good for like 4th grade and up. Jul 03, Ashley rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , poc-reads , j-graphic-novels.

The author credits baum's book about mermaids or the sort and a girls adventure I may have to read next! Aug 22, Marianne rated it really liked it.
I enjoyed the contrast between the modernity of the main characters and the eccentric vintage nature of the story a retelling of one of Baum's old stories.

I am so happy to see more illustrations by Janet Lee! So Trot is a surfer that hangs out at the beach everyday after school while her grandfather, who is surfing from dementia, watches her.
That caught my attention. Then this story kind of took a weird turn. One day her grandfather goes missing but is later found pretty quickly.
This causes Trot's mom though to forbid them from hanging out the beach all day anymore. They are to only stay in the house. Trot can't believe this is happening to her so one day, when she sees her grandfather is sleeping So Trot is a surfer that hangs out at the beach everyday after school while her grandfather, who is surfing from dementia, watches her.
Trot can't believe this is happening to her so one day, when she sees her grandfather is sleeping she decides to sneak out of the house and go surfing with her cat anyway.
This is where the story takes a sharp turn that I did not expect it to take. There is a bad storm her and Trot sink to the bottom of the ocean where they are saved by some Sirens.
To be honest, this isn't that unusual of a story. How many times do kids enter a closet or a different realm only to discover a world that they didn't know existed?
For some reason in this book though it felt completely abrupt and sudden and took me by surprise. The adventure itself is very straight forward and doesn't really build any type of suspense.
The plot is definitely extremely simple. I appreciate the sentiment that many of our differences can be resolved if we quit seeing everyone who is not like us as the enemy.
Useful universal message. I would classify this as more lower-middle grade. This is a perfectly fine graphic novel aimed at kids, but I found it a bit bland.
The art is bright and attractive, though I felt like it could do better at depicting dynamic scenes of movement and action, and I dislike how the faces tend to have a bit of a caricature style to them, with just-slightly-too-exaggerated features.
The plot is quite basic. The cat was a lot less likeable when it could talk supposedly it was just that Trot was given the ability to understand the cat, but the cats This is a perfectly fine graphic novel aimed at kids, but I found it a bit bland.

The underwater kingdom is full of apparently intelligent fish that serve the mermaid queen, and yet they also eat fish at their meals. Once the characters can magically breathe, being underwater is exactly like being on land, except they can float.
Jul 29, Samantha W. This was a quick read, and cute. I liked the characters, the adventure and development of them, and the cat of course.

It weaves Vietnamese mythology, fantastical ocean creatures, and a deep-sea setting. To Trot, life has always been about riding the waves and taking care of her grandfather.
When Trots grandfather reappears after disappearing, Trots mother loses her temper and grounds them both. Deciding that being grounded Other creators involved in the making of this graphic novel include: Lettering by Jimmy Gownley This graphic novel was inspired by The Sea Fairies, L.
However, it only takes one giant wave for every thing to go wrong. With the Sirens and the Snakes at war, how will they ever get back home now?
Both of them love surfing, but when they get caught up in the delight of surfing, things seem to start falling apart.
I really liked this graphic novel! However, the opening dedication clues readers in that Trot was originally a character created by L. Frank Baum in the Land of Oz.
Without familiarity with this character, it was good to have a full introduction to her personality through the first few scenes.
The story has changed quite a few times, and it is possible that Melusine was originally depicted in a more positive manner as a goddess of the sea.
In the most well-known version of the myth, Melusine promises to marry a knight as long as he swears to never see her on Saturdays, so that he might not see her water serpent tail.
They get married and somehow have children, and all the while he somehow never notices her tail. One day he breaks his promise to her and peeks at her while she bathes on a Saturday, and he sees her serpent-like tail.
He later blames her for a tragic event she had nothing to do with, the death of their son, and in her anger she turns into a dragon.
In later versions of the story, Melusine saves herself from her innately evil existence by becoming a Christian. The Atargatis mermaid myth is one of the oldest, originating in B.
Atargatis is the Assyrian goddess of the water and fertility and life, which have long been associated with water.
People worshipped her in a beautiful temple that probably had a lake or pool next to it, where people waded while they worshipped her, hoping for healing from the sacred water.
Atargatis accidentally killed her mortal lover and felt so much shame that she hid in a lake. The lake, however, could not conceal her completely because of her great beauty, so she turned the lower half of her body into a fish tail so that she could remain in the water.
Ondine, sometimes spelled Undine, is a sea nymph from an old German tale whose lover was unfaithful. She killed him by robbing him of his breath.
Ondine, like other sea nymphs, was immortal and lost her immortality after bearing children. The Ashgate research companion to monsters and the monstrous.
