The Illustrated Little Mermaid
on 15 April 2012
A Hans Christian Anderson story that is well worth the read. Note all the pictures are in black and white being very few of them but this doesn't detract from an excellent read. As you know this is not the Disney version of the Little Mermaid it is its original precursor. A sad tale to be sure but one with an uplifting ending when she attains an eternal soul. It would have been nice for Anderson to have wrote a sequel regarding her lives after accomplishing this goal and maybe her meeting up with the Prince in a following lifetime but this was overlooked, a pity but you can't expect everything.
Overall a must read for mermaid fans- because children didn't really know about them until this book was created.
