Amanda Hall's distinctive illustrations also brighten Stories from the Sea: An Abbeville Anthology by James Riordan: waves in watery colors decorate the bottom of every page, along with ships, mysterious sea creatures and other motifs from the nine folktales. The stories, which tell of such creatures as love-struck sea maidens or explain how the sea became salty, stem from a wide range of maritime cultures, including Celtic, Senegalese, Vietnamese and Siberian.
