    A must read. A grand slam graphic novel. ...

    Review of an ARC.I'm not sure how appropriate this subject matter is for middle grade readers. Just because the author sugarcoats it into a nice mermaid story doesn't hide the fact that this is about abduction and abuse. On the other hand, it may be a good thing. To show how strong and resilient the...

    There is no question that David Wiesner is an amazing artist. Here he joins forces with Donna Jo Napoli for a tale of a mermaid who lives in an aquarium and makes a human friend for the first time. Overall, the story is interesting and the interactions between Fish Girl the mermaid, Livia the human ...

    I LOVE David Wiesner's picturebooks and Donna Jo Napoli's fairy tale retellings, but this graphic novel is nothing like their previous works (unfortunately).Wiesner's artwork in Fish Girl is mostly flat and rather boring:...with the exception of a few spreads, which hint at the illustrator's full po...

    The art is gorgeous, and I love the idea of a mermaid with an octopus for a best friend. But the story just fell flat for me....

    Pretty big let down for me. The writing and dialogue felt unnatural & the story wasn't super interesting/slightly disturbing. I went in with high hopes (Donna Jo Napoli!!) and came out just meh. It's just okay. ...

    I'm a huge fan of Napoli, but this did nothing for me and it didn't feel anything like the rest of her fairy tale work, which is what I was anticipating. Weisner's art felt completely flat and emotionless to me. What a disappointment. ...

    As a child I was obsessed with David Wiesner's gorgeously illustrated children's novels (Jumanji, The Polar Express, Zathura, etc.) and as a teenager I was completely taken with Donna Jo Napoli's young adult books, especially since the majority of them were fairy tell retellings. I re-read Sirena (a...
