Sirena is a CHamoru girl who loves nature. She ignores her chores to go swimming in the sparkling river, at a time in Guam’s history when all is pristine. Her mother utters a curse that will forever change Sirena’s life, unless her godmother can help. Based on a universal “tail” of the beauty of mermaids, Sirena: A Mermaid Legend from Guam is a retelling of a classic for the next generation of CHamoru children. Illustrations by Sonny K. Chargualaf.
