" This is one of my favorite fairy tales. The illustrations here are just hauntingly, achingly beautiful. " said.

" This is a shortened version of Andersen's original fairy tale. The text captures the highlights and is beautifully enhanced by watery illustrations. " said.

" This is actually the first time I have read a non-disney version of The Little Mermaid. I have to say it was just gruesome enough and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the illustrations. " said.

" Very different from the Disney version! The prince marries another girl and the little mermaid dies! Who knew the original from Hans Christian Anderson (which I believe this author follows pretty closely) could be so morbid? :) Good exposure--and just in time for us to see The Little Mermaid ballet--the classic version. " said.

"I have had this book for a long time sitting out simply because I like the cover. When I read it, I realized how gruesome this version of the Little Mermaid really is. Specifically, in order to get legs instead of a tail her tongue must be cut out and every time she walks it wil be "as knives slicing through her feet" which is not very child appropriate in my opinion. As a teacher I would not have this version in my classroom, but I still like the book. The pictures are very pretty and colorful, and I do like the theme of sacrificing yourself for love, however I think it is a little bit too much for younger children." said.

" I very light-hearted retelling of the classic. " said.

" This is one of my favorite fairy tales. The illustrations here are just hauntingly, achingly beautiful. " said.
