Mermaid Mania!

The unicorn is delighted to invite you to Mermaid Mania, a feast of books about mermaids over at Serendipity Reviews all this week!

There, you'll meet a host of wonderful authors introducing their special brand of mermaids, and also find Katherine talking about the 'merlee' (that's mermaids to you) in her Echorium trilogy. I suppose she can't always be talking about unicorns, so I'll forgive her just this once.

Human or Fish? - Katherine lets us into the secret of how mermaids breed, and wonders if it's ever right to hunt them and eat their unborn children. (No, the unicorn's answer is NO! Mermaids are NOT fish... but humans have been known to hunt unicorns, so you might have a different view? Click the link to swim on over and vote.)

Favourite Mermaid Films/TV - Vivienne of Serendipity Reviews lists some of her favourite mermaids from the silver screen. What are yours?

Why Mermaids? - Laura Dockrill says she doesn't have a sparkly tail, but she knows what it feels like to be an outsider. Check out her new book Lorali.

How Emily Windsnap came to be - Liz Kessler tells how she came to write her best-selling series of books about a girl who turns into a mermaid whenever her legs get wet. (Swimming lessons could work out rather embarrassing...)

Cerulean Blue - illustrator Thea Baker introduces some beautiful mermaid illustrations in shades of blue.

A mermaid in a wheelchair - CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell talks about her mermaid picture book, illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson.

Enjoy this gossip of mermaids with KM Lockwood.
