Mermaid Stories & Tales
In Books, Film & Poetry


Oh, what a popular topic mermaids are! There are mermaid stories in every genre from box office hits to enchanting tales penned by imaginative authors. It's almost impossible to pick a favorite among them. So why pick at all? You can watch, peruse, or listen to all of them.

Here's a thought...
What about coming up with your own story?

Mermaid Stories

Once upon a time there was a film director named Ron Howard
Of unusual topics he was certainly no coward
He artfully directed a big hit called "Splash"
Number one at the box office bringing in loads of cash

And how many newborn girls were given the name "Madison" that year? I'm sure we all know someone with that name, mermaid or not!

Hans Christian Andersen, a famous storyteller was he
Widely known for his tale of a mermaid in the sea
"Little" she was called but became a big star
It was certainly his most popular book by far

Without a doubt one of the most famous mermaid tales of all time, The Little Mermaid has become a brand with spin-offs and product lines galore. I wonder what inspired Mr. Andersen to pen this story in the first place. Hmm...  do you think he actually saw a mermaid? Quite possible!

So we have famous, not quite so famous, and little-known gems in mermaid books, films, and poems. Let's explore them a little further, shall we? 

Of course the aforementioned big hits of Splash and The Little Mermaid are in good company with many other tales of tails for the big screen and small screens alike. Mermaid movies come to life in whimsical, mystical, comical, and supernatural themes, whether you're renting DVD's, streaming, or shelling out oodles of cash for popcorn and soda at your local theater!

In our home theater I can't wait to see
A mermaid story from under the sea
It's family movie night with popcorn galore
A mermaid's world we are about to explore

Who doesn't love a good book? The scent of a well-worn cover, the feel of textured pages between your fingers, a narrative that draws you in and suspends time — a bibliophile's paradise. Classics, fiction, exotic and erotic all set the stage for the perfect mermaid story. And for those who love verse, the imagery of the sea provides a beautiful backdrop for mermaid poetry.

Books, books, books and more books
Overflowing their shelves in every cranny and nook
Hardcover, paperback, ebooks as well
