Sailor Twain or The Mermaid in the Hudson by Mark Siegel
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The charcoal drawings were appealing as well as the storyline. Taking place in the late 1800's, the story was about a ship's captain and his love and obsession with a mermaid in the Hudson River. I really enjoyed the development of the plot as the reader learned about the mermaid as well as the myths surrounding her kind. I don't want to discuss too much because I feel that it would spoil the story for others.
I was captivated by the story and art and actually a little surprised of the ending.
I rated this book 5/5 stars and highly recommend it.
