The Little Mermaid by Katie Thamer Treherne (2)
Author: Katie Thamer Treherne
In this beloved classic, a little mermaid falls in love with a prince she has saved from a shipwreck and yearns to become human so she can marry him. Full-color illustrations.
A captivating classic with beautiful illustrations; this is what this book is all about. The story by Hans Christian Anderson is preserved in this book with the original text. As I have mentioned in other reviews on "The Little Mermaid", the original text can be a little strange or difficult for children to understand. What most children are interested in, are the great illustrations, which this book is full of! The illustrations in this book are brightly colored and match perfectly with every mood going on. The mermaids are also spectacular and gorgeous! I love the colors of the tails and scales. Take a look:
I think the only thing that parents should be concerned with is that in some illustrations the mermaids arent wearing shells and that their breasts are exposed.What I mostly appreciate about this book is that the author stuck to the original text of the story, and created beautiful illustrations. I give this book (*****) 5 stars.
