Top 10 Mermaid Books of 2015

 

Mermaids and merman, who are essentially the same but of the male gender have long fascinated all of us to the point that some of the earliest Barnum circuses often featured a live mermaid. Of course, the mermaid in question was not real but a patched up dress, designed to make you think that it is a real mermaid behind the glass cage.
