The Little Mermaid

Happy book birthday to The Little Mermaid. The Little Mermaid fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson is a well-known tale and doesn’t need an introduction.

In this story, a mermaid falls in love with a prince and sacrifices her voice to become a human. Will the prince love her too?

In this picture book, the illustrator Bernadette Watts brings this story to life with dream-like illustrations. I was also surprised to see that the original story is a bit different from what we know. The description of the underwater world and the mermaids by Hans Christian Anderson is magnificent.

I would like have all the fairy tales illustrated as separate books and this book is a great start. A must-read book, but the rich language makes it suitable for kids age 8 and above.

Thanks to @netgalley and @northsouthbooks for the ARC.

Kids age: 8 and above
