Description

Once, long ago there was a beautiful little mermaid with skin as pale as the palest rose petals and eyes the colour of the ocean itself. One day, she swims up to the surface of the sea, where she catches a glimpse of Prince Caspar on board a sailing ship and falls deeply in love. Ian Beck's powerful storytelling and jewelled illustrations bring this enchanting, timeless tale to life, making it the perfect gift for little girls everywhere!show more
