This book is primarily for children. I am not a child but have always been interested in mermaids. I found this book to be cute and interesting. It covers mermaids in different cultures from around the world and mermaid culture itself. There are sections on family life, children, community, language, art, fashion, holidays, and magic. There are beautiful color illustrations on every page. This is a book I know I would have loved as a child.
