Her body was found on the shore of Ligeia (Λιγεία): She was found ashore of. Sirens (sometimes spelled as ‘seirenes’) are a type of creature found in ancient Greek mythology. Sirens are commonly described as beautiful but dangerous creatures. In Greek mythology, sirens are known for seducing sailors with their sweet voices, and, by doing so, lure them to their deaths. Siren, in Greek mythology, a creature half bird and half woman who lured sailors to destruction by the sweetness of her song. According to Homer, there were two Sirens on an island in the western sea between Aeaea and the rocks of Scylla. Trot, a Vietnamese American surfer girl, and Cap’n Bill, her cranky one-eyed cat, catch too big a wave and wipe out, sucked down into a magical underwater kingdom where an ancient deep-sea battle rages. The beautiful Sea Siren mermaids are under attack from the Serpent King and his slithery minions–and Trot and her feline become dangerously entangled in this war of tails and fins.

Surprisingly, Trot's grandfather also shows up, having followed Trot to Trot loves surfing.

Not Fantastic or super memorable. But cute. Characters were mostly kind of dull, the dialogue read like something that had been translated, and the resolution was kind of But still cute.
A good concept I wish was executed better because I DO love mermaids and cats and this should have been the ultimate story for me.
But again, still cute. And pretty artwork! The character of Cap'N Bill saved this one! Jul 10, Ruth rated it liked it Shelves: , graphic-novel.
A beautifully illustrated, charming story featuring a Vietnamese-American girl and her one-eyed cat on an undersea adventure with the sea sirens and their enemies, the sea serpents.

Trot loves surfing. When she goes out in stormy waters with her cat, Cap'n Bill, they wipe out in the big waves. Trot is bonked on the head by her board and comes to in a fantastic underwater world under the care of the sea sirens who rescued her.
The sea sirens have made it so they can breathe underwater, and Cap'n Bill can even talk. The sea sirens are incredibly thankful because Cap'n Bill scared off the evil Serpents.
Surprisingly, Trot's grandfather also shows up, having followed Trot to Trot loves surfing. Surprisingly, Trot's grandfather also shows up, having followed Trot to the beach.
The three land dwellers are amazed by the sea sirens queendom, and the sirens believe they may be the answer to their ongoing war with the Serpents.
But Trot had snuck out of the house, Grandpa is not supposed to be out either because of his dementia, and they both are going to be in a heap of trouble when they get home so late.
But who can resist exploring the amazing siren world and helping them with their troubles? If you read the dedication page you'll see that Amy Chu dedicated this to the inspiration of L.
Frank Baum, and there are small nods to Dorothy's adventure in Oz in this story. He's a sweet guy and fun character.
He also speaks Vietnamese frequently, which is transliterated on the page and translated for English speakers. I like the inclusion of how immigrants frequently switch back and forth between their native language and English.
It rings so true to life. And that isn't the only Vietnamese part of the story. The architecture and dress of the sea sirens is definitely influenced by traditional Vietnamese art styles.
And I loved that. Speaking of artwork, it is beautiful. You are totally allowed to pick this up just to look at the illustrations.
They are vibrant, imaginative, and well-deserving of a shiny sticker. I'm looking at you, Caldecott. Ok, back to characters. Cap'n Bill was a fun, snarky character once he gets the ability to speak.
Imagine what your cat would say to you with a sudden ability to talk. The sea sirens are probably the nicest sirens in literature.
No singing sailors to doom here. They do fight sea snakes displaying their tough sides, but there is an unexpected twist in why the Serpents are invading the sirens' territory.
Trot is a likable character. She does make mistakes, but she also forges peace in situations where it is needed, learn from her mistakes, and love her Grandpa even when he kind of annoys her.
And readers can debate whether or not what she experienced was real or a result of the knock on the head. This was one of my favorite graphic novel reads of the year.
I love having the Southeast Asian flavor to share with our Southeast Asian students. The fantasy adventure is fun and imaginative.
I like the messages, and the nods to Oz. And I adore the artwork. Highly recommended! Notes on content: No language issues.
No sexual content or decency issues. The battle between the Serpents and the sirens is conveyed without much violence actually being shown.
The worst injury on page is when Trot gets bonked on the head by her surf board, and that isn't very serious. Trot is disobedient at one point, but learns her lesson.

Look at the cover and TELL me this book isn't gorgeous. Delicious, bright sea-washed watercolor digital watercolor? She's at the beach every day after school, half-babysitting her granddad, who loves to fish but is frequently forgetful; his dementia often makes him believe he is still in Vietnam, or forget familiar people or settings for periods of time.
When her grandfather wanders off one day while Trot is in the water, Mom bans surfing trips-- but independent Trot races to the beach anyway, with Granddad not far behind.
When a big wave comes along, however, she and her cat are knocked far down into the ocean, right into the middle of a skirmish between the Serpents and the Sirens the sirens resemble mermaids, with curling, seahorselike tails and immaculate, excitingly decorated hair.
Cats terrify snakes, and so the serpents scatter, leaving Capn Bill a hero -- the sirens grant both land creatures the ability to breathe beneath the water, and invite them for a feast.
The queen of their kingdom isn't especially pleased that they have been given the power to breathe underwater, but recognizes their right to stay as guests-- but things get more complicated when it turns out that Granddad has wound up in their city, too.
When he ventures off on his own on the bottom of the sea, he is quickly captured by serpents who hold him captive. The story is inventive, compelling, and fast-moving enough to capture the attention of middle-grade readers, and its dreamlike qualities don't really need to make sense for the story to work.
Trot is plucky, smart, and makes friends quickly with Clia, who has her own problems with strict mothers.
She also banters amusingly with Cap'n Bill, who, it turns out, can talk but not be understood by humans without magic he likes mackerel.
While little of the story relates to Vietnamese heritage specifically, the passages where Trot's grandfather speaks in Vietnamese root the story in his immigrant experience, and Trot's respect and love of her grandfather references Chu and Lee say the creators' own relationship to family and heritage.
As it turns out, the king of the serpents is also an immigrant, sunk by pirates some hundred-plus years ago on his way to California, and interpreted by snakes as the new king, after the old king a dragon passes away.
It's hard to get a graphic novel that will appeal simultaneously to pirate-story fans and to sensitive children with dreams of secret, beautiful, detailed worlds beneath the ocean; this does it.
G-d, it's so pretty. The story is good, but the art is truly exceptional. Lee's work combines a Rick Geary -esque comics style with some incredibly lush art nouveau details.
The beautiful whiplash lines! I don't think I'm smart enough to describe how and why the illustrations kick so much ass! There were times when I just spaced out, stopped reading, and just looked at the illustrations.
Some the text was clunky even for a children's book and the plotting was a little wonky. I will definitely continue to The story is good, but the art is truly exceptional.
She married her brother, the god Aganju, and was raped by her son Orungan. She not only symbolizes motherhood, but also sexuality. She is sometimes portrayed as a large fish or as a traditional half-human, half-fish mermaid.
She is usually depicted as a light-skinned woman with long black hair and a rainbow crown or halo.
In Africa, she is sometimes depicted as a dark-skinned woman, sometimes holding a serpent or a mirror and comb, symbols that might represent vanity or femininity.
She was the goddess of both sea and land and one of the most important goddesses or spirits in this tradition. She brought animals into view so that hunters could find them, and also hid animals to prevent them from being hunted.
In one version of her origin story, Sedna mistakenly marries a bird spirit who is disguised as a man and moves to an island with him. Her father comes by boat to rescue her, and the bird spirit flaps its wings, causing a storm.
Her fingers become the whales and walruses and other sea animals, and she becomes the mother of all sea creatures and a spirit of the sea.
Ala-Muki was a mythical river dragon-woman of ancient Hawaiian mythology who lived in the Waialua River. Ancient Hawaiians believed in spirit-gods known as kupuas, who could appear in either animal or human form.
The greatest of the kupuas were the dragon gods, and the oldest dragon gods resided in rivers and lakes.
Volcanic eruptions were often associated with the birth of a kupua, particularly the dragon gods. Let us know if you have suggestions to improve this article requires login.

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.
