We are constantly updating our booklists, and one of the newest ones is called, "Mermaids, Sirens & Other Sea Creatures". It seems as soon as the list is updated about 20 more books come in that would have worked perfectly. So, this is an update to that list, a few more titles that just missed the cut.
