The Little Mermaid

How much are you willing to sacrifice in the name of love?

In the beloved fairy tale ´The Little Mermaid´, Hans Christian Andersen beautifully depicts a mermaid princess' tranquil but tragic life under the sea. Curious about humans, the princess daringly ventures above the surface and finds herself drawn to a human prince.

However, being unable to do anything about her growing love for the prince, she eventually seeks help from a mystical sea witch, who changes her life forever - but at what cost?

A story which uncovers themes such as unrequited love and alienation, ´The Little Mermaid´ is the ideal read for fans of Guillermo del Toro's ´The Shape of Water´.

A live-action remake featuring Halle Bailey is set to release in 2023.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet, and artist. Celebrated for children’s literature, his most cherished fairy tales include 'The Emperor's New Clothes', 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Snow Queen', and 'The Ugly Duckling'.
