Description

Rediscover the story of the Little Mermaid, who dreams of a world above the waves . . .

In Anna Kemp's powerful reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, Princess Coral saves the life of Prince Eldo and falls in love with the world of humans. Disregarding her father's wishes she seeks out the Sea Witch who gives her a vial of potion that will enable her to walk on two legs. But magic comes at a terrible price - what will Coral have to give up to realise her dreams?

This beloved story has been reimagined for a new generation with magical illustrations from debut talent Natelle Quek, inspired by her Chinese-Malaysian heritage.
