The Little Mermaid Who Loved Too Much by Chris Van Dyk
In the days leading up to "Mother Goose: an Empire Falls" we find a sordid love story between Adrian, a ferocious mermaid adapted to living in the depths of the ocean, and Captain Rehab, a man with a grisly past. Their ongoing game of Cat and Mouse has been carrying on for years until it culminates in an Arctic show down.
Not a story recommended for children, this tale will lampoon your childhood favorites along with cameos from literary greats. It also ties into the story of Mother Goose and explains how Goldilocks convinced the sea people to come to her aid. If you delight in absurd humor with cyclical plots and narrations that go out of their way to obliterate the fourth wall, this is the story for you.
