A full colored picture book that is based off of Barbie In A Mermaid Tale 2
As I have previously mentioned on my other blog Media Mermaids and on this blog as well, I love Barbie In A Mermaid Tale! Although many people would expect it to be juvenile because it features Barbie, it actually wasn't at all. What I loved about this book is that the text wasn't simplified for young readers, and older mermaids will be able to enjoy this with the mer-children. The illustrations were also brilliantly bright and beautiful! I have noticed something about the illustrations of Merliah. She looks way too girly in the books compared to the movies. Take a look and see what you think:
|notice how thin she looks, and|
how much makeup she's wearing as well!
|Much more natural and normal!|
PS: There is also a smaller golden book. Here is the book cover:
Although the smaller golden book is similar, the big golden book has more detail to it. Check them both out to see which one you prefer :)
