I first saw the short film on The Little Mermaid DVD special feature section and it left me with tears in my eyes. I bought the book for myself and my God Daughter. It sends such a wonderful message to all ages and really makes you appreciate life.

Nicely illustrated and the story line is true to the original. Check out Hans Christian Andersen's background / biography to truly appreciate this short story.

I read this book before and really like it. It has a happy-type sort of ending (although you might only think of one part of the ending), even though it may not seem rightly so. Really good (child's) story for anyone. So, keeping an open mind and you'll probably really like it too. I don't think the ending of the story is bad; it's really good. Has good moral, which brings to my mind of the Grimm's stories without the grotesque. Try it if you want a break from any complicated book(s) you've been reading :)

This book is so wonderful. It really puts things in perspective for children as well as adults. Especially around Christmastime. It reminds us that Christmas is about others...not ourselves, and how the things of this world are nothing compared to heaven! We have read this story every Christmas season and cry everytime. But how we look forward to hearing it. I consider it a treasure that was shared with me when I was little, and now I share it with MY family...
