The Mermaid's Treasure by Stephanie True Peters
Author: Stephanie True Peters
For anyone who has ever wondered if mermaids exist, here is a stunning oversize novelty book that reveals everything about their secret world, from how to recognize and find them to tips about their style and preferences. Stories about mermaids past and present are interwoven with activities such as selecting the perfect pet for a mermaid and touring a mermaid castle. Breathtaking watercolor paintings of mermaids, marine animals, and underwater landscapes offer plenty of details to discover. This beautiful gift book offers interactive fun on every page, leading up to a glittery surprise on the final spread.
This mermaid book is truly phenomenal, and one of a kind. For those of you who keep up with my blog consistently, you will see that I review all sorts of mermaid books, especially ones that share mermaid secrets. However, this one is absolutely gorgeous! The book opens up with a young girl claiming that she saw a mermaid, who then leaves her a bunch of treasures from the deep. Continuing on in the mermaids perspective, she opens up to the young girl about her world and the mermaid culture, such as the styles of fashion and even the types of pets mermaids have. What I also loved about this book is the amount of beautiful mermaid images; they are truly stunning, and colorful, which is a must-have in a children's book. I will definitely be adding this to my mer-library, and I recommend to all of you to give this a try. It is perfect for children and adults alike since it is not written in a juvenile fashion, and it is full of interesting stories, pictures and information. I give this book (*****) 5 stars.
