" This is a very quick read but so lovely. The illustrations are amazing, and the main characters struggle to understand herself and her world are poignant. " said.

" easy read, wonderful artwork. Great for kids who love mermaid stories. Story stays with you. The friendships stay with you. " said.

" I would be hard pressed to read anything by Napoli I didn't like. The characterization doesn't go as deep as it usually does under her hand, but overall, it was very good. " said.

" Fun graphic novel that's a very quick read and an entertaining story! Beautiful illustrations! I've read some of Donna Napoli's other books and have loved them (such as Zel- a retelling of Rapunzel) which is why I picked up this on. " said.

" Never a fan of graphic novels, the quality of the illustrations,depth of the plot and breadth of the vocabulary makes this book a "game changer". I really enjoyed it. Who knew octopi had personalities? He just needs a name. " said.

" Mixed feelings for this one, ...Yes, it is a strange story with gorgeous art,however, I am not sure the what the main message that is being put out there is, or if it is a wholly good one.I shared this book with an 11 year old girl, She liked it. She said: "It was good. But the ending was kinda dumb.". " said.

" This is a beautiful heartwarming book! I loved it! It's the story of a Fish Girl who really had to learn that she was never a fish. As a teacher...I know that children would love this book...probably hits around the 8 to 10 year old range but literally all ages will love this sweetly sad story and its beautiful illustrations!It's easy to read and it's easy as a read aloud, too. Plus it's a stepping stone into great ocean facts! " said.

"A lovely graphic novel about Mira, mermaid living in an aquarium operated by "Neptune". She's content in her tank with her friends the fish and an octopus, but longs to be an ordinary girl. Then she discovers that Neptune is not who he purports to be.

A beautifully illustrated, touching story about loneliness and longing with a bit of cautionary tale (forgive the pun) about being careful what you wish for. From noted author, Donna Jo Napoli, and illustrator, David Wiesner, this graphic novel lives up to the high expectations I had set. Just beautiful.
" said.
