Preview — Sea Sirens by Amy Chu. Janet K. Lee illustrator. Dive into this middle-grade graphic novel about a Vietnamese American surfer girl and her talking cat who plunge into a fantasy world of oceanic marvels.
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.

Frank Baum was not a good storyteller: he didn't want kids to be worried, so as soon as any sort of conflict would arise in the plot, he had it instantly resolved.
If the purpose of fairy tales is to teach us that dragons can be killed, Baum's stories are a particular failure, because the heroines don't get to fight, or even think up a possible solution.
They lack all agency. Anything you like about the Wizard comes from the movie, not the book. But this now, this is a thing of beauty.
A modern California surfer girl and her fierce talking cat? That's the dream. The art is gorgeous, a little art nouveau, a little Arthur Rackham, a strong stylistic distinction between the world above and the one below.
And the story. Amy Chu has taken Baum's work, updated it, made it interesting and relevant, given it cultural depth by connecting it to Vietnamese folklore.

A girl discovers a fairy realm at the bottom of the sea and has adventures, accompanied by her cat and her grandfather. Partially inspired by the relatively unknown book The Sea Fairies by L.
Frank Baum , but also by Vietnamese tales, as well as the author's own imagination. So Cap'n Bill is now a cat rather than human character, and Trot's grandfather is dealing with senile dementia or maybe Alzheimer's.
A little too simple for me, but probably will be appreciated by young readers. Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
The artwork is really well done, very Little Nemo-esque. I liked the story to this a lot. I love the fact it's talks about singe parents and grandparents with dementia.
My grandmother had dementia and it's not easy so this book somewhat gets you ready what you might expect, but in a less dramatic way. Mainly got this book because it's based on a Baum book that I've read before.
Baum's story not as well known as Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside. Baum's story not as well known as his Oz books, but they connect with Oz.
This book is a modern adaption and removes the Oz connections which I think is better. It does have several homages to the Oz books though.
One thing I noticed right away is Trot's ballroom dress looks exactly like Ozma, all intentional too.
Overall, this was a fun little comic and glad to see this isn't the last one. Rating: 4. The plot and beautiful illustrations keep you turning the page!
Powerful themes of family and friendship, alongside adventure, are present all throughout Chu and Lee's spectacular graphic novel!
This one is a must-read! The story starts with her spending the day at the beach surfing and her grandfather enjoying fishing! But, her grandfather goes missing due to his dementia and she's heartbroken!
Luckily he's found, but her workaholic mother tells her she can't go out to the beach without her, to ensure her grandfather's safety!
Luckily, Cap'n Bill chases the serpents away! I don't want to spoil things, but there's a few plot twists that send Trot, Cap'n Bill, and Clia on a rescue mission!
The politics and world-building of the underwater kingdom were so beautifully explored and had so much depth--yet still left a bit of mystery that I can't wait to learn more about in future books!
