Reviews for A Mermaid's Tale


"For those who are yearning for a bit of magic in this grey season, California-based author Amanda Adams brings you A Mermaid's Tale . . . which details her quest for the extraordinary and the beautiful, all the while blending anthropology, literature, poetry and mythology." —Argyle Magazine


"An absorbing book that weaves together mermaid mythology, depictions of mermaids in art . . . and [Adam's] own personal 'mermaidenry.'" —Booklist


"Amanda Adams combines in rare fashion the three roles that Vladimir Nabokov assigned to the writer: storyteller, teacher and enchanter . . . A Mermaid's Tale gives us the poetry of sea creatures: haunting verse, enthralling images and captivating narratives." —Globe & Mail
