The Little Mermaid is one of my all time favourites and I believe it will stay that way for a long time. In this particular version (although the same story) I love haunting the images are, yet they’re extremely gentle and soft. The way the princess has been done is so beautiful I can’t possibly imagine why no little girl wouldn’t be addicted to this book. It is however, a more advanced version of the story and therefore for an older audience.
