Hans Christian Andersen's beloved classic about a little mermaid who falls in love with a handsome young prince comes vividly to life in this captivating coloring book. The perennially popular tale, presented complete and unabridged, is enhanced by Thea Kliros's engaging ready-to-color line drawings.
Thirty-one large and imaginatively drawn illustrations (including many two-page spreads) depict the magical world of the Sea King and his six lovely mermaid daughters. Youngsters are invited to color the littlest mermaid and her beloved garden of deep-sea plant and animal life, the splendid turreted palace of the young prince, the dark domain of the grotesque and evil sea witch, and much more.
Young readers will thrill to this enchanting story and its belief in the victory of goodness and virtue over evil. Best of all, they can have hours of fun bringing their own ideas of color and hue to Hans Christian Andersen’s time-honored tale.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book contains the complete story of the Little Mermaid as written by Hans Christian Anderson with accompanying illustrations to color. The illustrations are detailed and well-done, but are really only secondary to the story itself. While there are pictures on every page, some pages only have one half-page picture on the two-page spread. I only gave the book 3 stars because I was disappointed in the relatively few pictures to color given the size of the book.
