Oh Lord this version always breaks my heart…..Absolutely stunning pictures dominated by my favourite hues of blues, greens and violets and a beautiful retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s “Little Mermaid” enjoyable for kids of all ages. Don’t expect the Disney happy ending though, as this is the original version! I had to stop reading at one point as I nearly cried on the tube (I’m such a sap!). A lovely, graphic reprieve from the real world Loved it!!! Oh and Metaphrog are Scottish! Double love!
On a sidenote, I was lucky enough to visit the Hans Christian Anderson Museum and the Little Mermaid statue at Copenhagen last Christmas. It really is fitting our little mermaid is placed at the Langelinie promenade, not just as a tribute to Hans Christian Anderson but also so that she can look over both worlds and have have the best of both as she deserves. Such a gorgeously poignant statue. Sigh….
