New Title

1) Siegel, Mark. Sailor Twain: or The Mermaid in the Hudson. 2012. First Second. Hardbound: 400 pages. Price: $24.99 U.S.

SUMMARY: One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular--and notoriously reclusive--author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse. As three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens.
     A mysterious and beguiling love story with elements of Poe, Twain, Hemingway, and Greek mythology, drawn in moody black-and-white charcoal, Sailor Twain is a study in romance, atmosphere, and suspense.
RECOMMENDATION: This graphic novel isn't for children due to nudity and language, but it's an interesting story!
