"Now I lived in New York long enough to be fully aware of the Mermaid Parade of Coney Island. It takes place once a year to welcome in the summer season. People of all stripes get decked out as mermaids or sea creatures or Neptunes and then parade down the wooden boardwalk, right before throwing fruit into the sea. Honestly, if you want to know anything about it you should read Melanie Hope Greenberg’s seminal picture book Mermaids On Parade." 

- Elizabeth Bird, Fuse#8 Blog School Library Journal

“Greenberg paints detailed—and accurate—layouts of the neighborhood, 

complete with shops, arcades, the F train to Coney Island, Astroland, 

and diverse people decked out in their sea-creature finery.”
