Average Rating:
Rate this:
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. This beautiful graphic novel was inspired by The Sea Fairies, L. Frank Baum's "underwater Wizard of Oz." It weaves Vietnamese mythology, fantastical ocean creatures, a deep-sea setting, quirky but sympathetic main characters, and fast-paced adventure into an imaginative, world-building story.--

I know I'm not the target audience but I found it very predictable and dry, even as a book for that level reader.

Cute middle grade comic about a Vietnamese surfer girl, her grandfather, and her cat, who discovers a mermaid realm in the ocean. The story is clearly for kids, and the art is beautiful.
