Frank Baum was not a good storyteller: he didn't want kids to be worried, so as soon as any sort of conflict would arise in the plot, he had it instantly resolved.
If the purpose of fairy tales is to teach us that dragons can be killed, Baum's stories are a particular failure, because the heroines don't get to fight, or even think up a possible solution.
They lack all agency. Anything you like about the Wizard comes from the movie, not the book. But this now, this is a thing of beauty.
A modern California surfer girl and her fierce talking cat? That's the dream. The art is gorgeous, a little art nouveau, a little Arthur Rackham, a strong stylistic distinction between the world above and the one below.
And the story. Amy Chu has taken Baum's work, updated it, made it interesting and relevant, given it cultural depth by connecting it to Vietnamese folklore.
Modern surfer girl. Talking cat. Together they have made something truly Wonderful. Library copy. Jun 10, Ed Erwin rated it liked it Shelves: comics , little-free-library.
A girl discovers a fairy realm at the bottom of the sea and has adventures, accompanied by her cat and her grandfather. Partially inspired by the relatively unknown book The Sea Fairies by L.
Frank Baum , but also by Vietnamese tales, as well as the author's own imagination. So Cap'n Bill is now a cat rather than human character, and Trot's grandfather is dealing with senile dementia or maybe Alzheimer's.
A little too simple for me, but probably will be appreciated by young readers. Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
The artwork is really well done, very Little Nemo-esque. I liked the story to this a lot. I love the fact it's talks about singe parents and grandparents with dementia.
My grandmother had dementia and it's not easy so this book somewhat gets you ready what you might expect, but in a less dramatic way.
Mainly got this book because it's based on a Baum book that I've read before. Baum's story not as well known as Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
Baum's story not as well known as his Oz books, but they connect with Oz. This book is a modern adaption and removes the Oz connections which I think is better.
It does have several homages to the Oz books though. One thing I noticed right away is Trot's ballroom dress looks exactly like Ozma, all intentional too.
Overall, this was a fun little comic and glad to see this isn't the last one. Rating: 4. The plot and beautiful illustrations keep you turning the page!
Powerful themes of family and friendship, alongside adventure, are present all throughout Chu and Lee's spectacular graphic novel!
This one is a must-read! The story starts with her spending the day at the beach surfing and her grandfather enjoying fishing!
But, her grandfather goes missing due to his dementia and she's heartbroken! Luckily he's found, but her workaholic mother tells her she can't go out to the beach without her, to ensure her grandfather's safety!
Luckily, Cap'n Bill chases the serpents away! I don't want to spoil things, but there's a few plot twists that send Trot, Cap'n Bill, and Clia on a rescue mission!
The politics and world-building of the underwater kingdom were so beautifully explored and had so much depth--yet still left a bit of mystery that I can't wait to learn more about in future books!
Now onto the representation! This graphic novel mainly features Vietnamese representation! Trot herself is Vietnamese-American and her grandfather is Vietnamese!
It was great to see the rep. The representation and culture is woven throughout the pages of this beautiful story!
The art itself is so unique! There's an element of watercolor and vibrant linework present throughout the whole graphic novel! I really paid attention to the artwork throughout each panel and was in awe at the stunning art that not only immersed me, but left me captivated!
The design of the characters, settings, and color palette brought everything to life! Sea Sirens ends on a wonderful note hinting at more to come and I can't wait!!
Lee is a beautiful and immersive graphic novel that's filled with adventure when Trot gets sucked into an underwater kingdom! From the story to artwork, themes, and so much more--this is a wonderful graphic novel that you don't want to miss!
Its wonderful! Jul 23, Constance rated it really liked it. Gorgeous art, imaginative story, uplifting ending. What more could you want?
Jun 18, Rae rated it really liked it Shelves: arcs. Thank you to Viking and Penguin Random House publishing for sending me this sweet book!!!
I totally didn't expect to receive such a cool graphic novel and when it arrived I couldn't help but read it immediately! It was such a fun adventure full of the love of family, pets, and discovery.
I am totally on board for the next installment whenever it is due to be published! The artwork was so colorful and eye catching throughout and the story was one that warms your heart.
I absolutely loved this! I'll have a more in depth and coherent review for this eventually, but for now, Thank You!
And it was a great book for the start of summer! May 25, Alicia rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novel , voices , fantasy , female , magical , series , action , amexperience , asian , family.
This beautiful graphic novel has the richness of color and the mashup of Vietnamese culture along with the sirens of the sea mythology and adds in a one-eyed surfing cat and a grandfather that has dementia.
It's altogether lovely, funny, serious, family-oriented, culturally rich, etc. Trot likes to surf while her grandfather fishes from the dock.
He goes missing one day because he forgets where he is. 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 brain stops giving the lungs the signal to inhale.
The medical term for this disease is central hypoventilation syndrome. This syndrome has a genetic etiology and is often lethal, especially in infants.

Mythologers say that they were little birds with women's faces who beguiled sailors as they passed by, bewitching with lewd songs the hearing of those harkening to them.
And the song of pleasure has no good consequence, only death. But the truth of the matter is this, that there are narrow straits in the sea created by certain mountains in which the compressed rush of water sends up a sort of melodious lilt; when those who sail by hear it, they trust their lives to the rushing water and perish, with crews and ships.

Strabo, Geography 6. The island is named after one of the Seirenes Sirens , who was cast ashore here after the Seirenes had flung themselves, as the myth has it, into the depths of the sea [following their encounter with Odysseus].
In front of the island lies that promontory which is opposite the Seirenoussai Sirenussae and with them forms the Poseidonian Gulf.
