Ceto was the mother of the Gorgons , the most well-known of which is Medusa, who became mortal. She might have also been the mother of Ladon, a dragon that was slain by Heracles, although some sources claim she was not the mother of Ladon.
At the bank of the Rhine River, near Sankt Goarshausan, Germany lies the Lorelei Rock, named after a legendary maiden who cast herself into the sea after she discovered that her lover was unfaithful.
She became a siren who lured sailors to their deaths on the rocks through her beauty. The area by the Lorelei Rock produces a constant echoing sound, and for many centuries this was attributed to the mournful cries of the young maiden Lorelei.
They were seals who came from the ocean onto land and shed their seal skin, becoming beautiful women. They were very family-oriented and were discouraged from wandering away from their seal families.
They sometimes married human men, however, and made good, faithful wives. Selkies would usually grow tired of life on land and would return to the sea, usually leaving while their husbands were away at work.
Some husbands tried to prevent their selkie wives from returning home by withholding the magical talismans the selkies required in order to regrow their seal skin.
In most of these stories, however, the wives found the hidden talismans and left their husbands. The Yawk-Yawk are water spirits in the Australian Aboriginal tradition.
They live in sacred water holes and possess great power. They can provide food and water, like the Hawaiian kupuas, and can cause natural disasters when angered.

Frank Baum was not a good storyteller: he didn't want kids to be worried, so as soon as any sort of conflict would arise in the plot, he had it instantly resolved.
If the purpose of fairy tales is to teach us that dragons can be killed, Baum's stories are a particular failure, because the heroines don't get to fight, or even think up a possible solution.
They lack all agency. Anything you like about the Wizard comes from the movie, not the book. But this now, this is a thing of beauty.
A modern California surfer girl and her fierce talking cat? That's the dream. The art is gorgeous, a little art nouveau, a little Arthur Rackham, a strong stylistic distinction between the world above and the one below.
And the story. Amy Chu has taken Baum's work, updated it, made it interesting and relevant, given it cultural depth by connecting it to Vietnamese folklore.
Modern surfer girl. Talking cat. Together they have made something truly Wonderful. Library copy. Jun 10, Ed Erwin rated it liked it Shelves: comics , little-free-library.
A girl discovers a fairy realm at the bottom of the sea and has adventures, accompanied by her cat and her grandfather.
Partially inspired by the relatively unknown book The Sea Fairies by L. Frank Baum , but also by Vietnamese tales, as well as the author's own imagination.
So Cap'n Bill is now a cat rather than human character, and Trot's grandfather is dealing with senile dementia or maybe Alzheimer's.
A little too simple for me, but probably will be appreciated by young readers. Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
The artwork is really well done, very Little Nemo-esque. I liked the story to this a lot. I love the fact it's talks about singe parents and grandparents with dementia.
My grandmother had dementia and it's not easy so this book somewhat gets you ready what you might expect, but in a less dramatic way.
Mainly got this book because it's based on a Baum book that I've read before. Baum's story not as well known as Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
Baum's story not as well known as his Oz books, but they connect with Oz. This book is a modern adaption and removes the Oz connections which I think is better.
It does have several homages to the Oz books though. One thing I noticed right away is Trot's ballroom dress looks exactly like Ozma, all intentional too.
Overall, this was a fun little comic and glad to see this isn't the last one. Rating: 4. The plot and beautiful illustrations keep you turning the page!
Powerful themes of family and friendship, alongside adventure, are present all throughout Chu and Lee's spectacular graphic novel! This one is a must-read!
The story starts with her spending the day at the beach surfing and her grandfather enjoying fishing! But, her grandfather goes missing due to his dementia and she's heartbroken!
Luckily he's found, but her workaholic mother tells her she can't go out to the beach without her, to ensure her grandfather's safety!
Luckily, Cap'n Bill chases the serpents away! I don't want to spoil things, but there's a few plot twists that send Trot, Cap'n Bill, and Clia on a rescue mission!
The politics and world-building of the underwater kingdom were so beautifully explored and had so much depth--yet still left a bit of mystery that I can't wait to learn more about in future books!
Now onto the representation! This graphic novel mainly features Vietnamese representation! Trot herself is Vietnamese-American and her grandfather is Vietnamese!
It was great to see the rep. The representation and culture is woven throughout the pages of this beautiful story! The art itself is so unique! There's an element of watercolor and vibrant linework present throughout the whole graphic novel!
I really paid attention to the artwork throughout each panel and was in awe at the stunning art that not only immersed me, but left me captivated!
The design of the characters, settings, and color palette brought everything to life! Sea Sirens ends on a wonderful note hinting at more to come and I can't wait!!
Lee is a beautiful and immersive graphic novel that's filled with adventure when Trot gets sucked into an underwater kingdom!
From the story to artwork, themes, and so much more--this is a wonderful graphic novel that you don't want to miss! Its wonderful! Jul 23, Constance rated it really liked it.
Gorgeous art, imaginative story, uplifting ending. What more could you want? Jun 18, Rae rated it really liked it Shelves: arcs.
Thank you to Viking and Penguin Random House publishing for sending me this sweet book!!! I totally didn't expect to receive such a cool graphic novel and when it arrived I couldn't help but read it immediately!
