" Simple story, pretty illustrations, generally fun. Recommended. " C. L. said.
" I enjoyed this book a little bit. The only reason I didn't like it because it was more mermaidy than fish. So it wasn't my favorite. " Eliza said.
" I felt like she was holding back tbh. 3 stars would be for a random ya author; 2 for Napoli. " virgodura said.
" What a great story, fantasy and reality intersect with this mermaid tale. Fish girl lives in a house turned aquarium, and people pay to try to catch a glimpse of her. Neptune takes care of her and rescued her, or did he? " Marta Boksenbaum said.
" The story does not give enough explanation for how some of the fish girl's situation came to be, but David Wiesner's gorgeous art pushed this from a 3 star book up. A first foray into graphic novels for both author/illustrator. " Tamsyn said.
" Advanced copy for honest review.I liked the illustrations but I don't feel this story brought anything new to the table.I have a student who loves mermaid books and was excited to get this for her. Maybe she will enjoy it because of the subject. " Ms. Warchol said.
" Woah! What a beautiful, fantastic story!!! David Wiesner is one of my all-time favorites, and his illustrations are gorgeous!!! I went into this story not knowing what to think, but it's worth the read. The story of Fish Girl is one that you won't forget for a long time. Perfection!!! " Beth said.
" I ordered this for the library- but it seems more like a YA graphic rather than for kids. The artwork is beautiful- the subject matter is tricky. I think it would do well in YA. Fish Girl- lives in an aquarium with Octopus and her other friends. She slowly discovers that King Neptune is not all he has led her to believe. " B said.
