The story is quite short, only about quarter of an hour so really good for before bedtime. Usually we like these audio books for in the car but this is a little short for long trips. The voices of the characters are like the ones in the film so will be familiar to those whoo are fans of the film. There are sound effects to tell the reader when to turn the page which is great for kids just learning to read.
The illustrations are really good - if you have seen the film you will know what to expect. The book printing is good quality too - fairly durable for the age it is targetted at. All in all, we are very happy with this and would recommend it to fans of the film who are at the age of learning to read in particular.
A jingly bell sound tells the reader when to turn the page for following the pictures or reading along, depending on ability. Each double page has a large illustration and approximately a third of a page of writing - the font is quite small - I would suggest age 6 and above, but it will depend on the reader.
The story is quite sweet - a bit of villainy and conflict but nothing too scary - this is Disney after all... I think possibly a decent bed time book - not too exciting... I haven't seen the film but I am guessing this is abridged- the CD runs for just shy of 15 minutes.
If you've seen the film then you know what to expect here. I let my nearly 6-year-old daughter listen to the CD whilst reading the book. The CD runs for just under 15-minutes. This is one track that contains all the story and has chimes ringing for when the page in the book needs to be turned.
And the voices of the characters are like the ones in the film. The only bit that didn't work well was that Prince Eric falls in love with Ariel's singing in the story, but the actual singing is missing from the CD.
The book is well laid out with nice full page pictures running throughout.
The CD itself fits into the front cover of the book with a plastic covering holding it in, and the book is hardcover too. This means it isn't as flimsy as some other books that come with CDs where the CD holder gets ripped out by little hands.
Most of all I think this book is ideal for girls who are familiar with the Little Mermaid film and are learning to read, so that they can give their parents some quiet time as they go off somewhere to listen to the CD and read the book.
Might have to get some of the other ones in the series too.
