A beautiful retelling of the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen, with lyrical text and evocative watercolour illustrations to bring the story to life. The little mermaid lives at the bottom of the sea, where the water is as clear as glass and the sand as fine as powder. She longs to see the world above the waves, but at what cost? Perfect for children to pore over on their own, or to share together.
