The Mermaid Atlas: Merfolk of the World by Anna Claybourne & illustrated by Miren Asiain Lora

The Mermaid Atlas is a fascinating encyclopaedia of mermaids and other mythical water creatures from all around the world. So many people picture mermaids as the conventional “Little Mermaid” but there is so much to these magical beings. This book explores each continent in turn as well as focussing on mermaid homes, ancient mermaids, mermaid magic, creatures mistaken for mermaids and mermaid sightings. It is a must-have for any mermaid or folklore lover.

The detailed maps are amazing. It is so interesting to see the different beliefs, sightings and stories from across the globe. Yet, one thing remains the same, mermaids are powerful and deserve respect. From the Arctic to the Caribbean to the South Pacific, mermaids have a mystical strength that can overpower anyone they come across. They may be good-natured or they may be evil but no matter what, they are the rulers of their underwater domains.

This book is an absolute treasure trove of mermaid facts – an enchanting collection of folklore, history and stories of cultural significance. It is perfect for anyone wanting to delve deeper into the oceans of knowledge that await.

Thank you to NetGalley and Laurence King Publishing Ltd for this gorgeous book. It will be published in June 2020.
