Beyond Of Poseidon by Anna Banks: Famous Mermaids

This week, we’ve already discussed mermaids in pop culture — and in a bit of crossover, today we’re looking at famous mermaids. It’s all part of our June Book of the Month Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, a great new YA novel with a mermaid twist.


From Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” this red-headed siren is perhaps the most easily-recognizable mermaid across the globe.


When you get your morning coffee fix, that is indeed a mermaid on that paper Starbucks cup.

  1. Another story about a mermaid is “Aquamarine” by Alice Hoffman, a fun read and I love Hoffman’s writings. Later it was made into a movie starring, Sara Paxton as the mermaid.
