The Little Mermaid
The classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.
There is only one way the Little Mermaid can win the prince’s heart and gain an immortal soul: she must agree to the sea witch’s terrible deal—give up her voice in return for a pair of legs. But will her dream come true?
Bernadette brings to new life this world-famous, unabridged fairy tale—immersing the reader in the magical world beneath the sea.
Her books generally display warm and pleasing colors that bathe each image in an almost theater-like setting: the lights have been dimmed, the curtain has been drawn, and the viewer has settled back, invited into the magic unfolding in Bernadette’s art and stories.
