Synopsis

The Little Mermaid by Jan Lewis

This book lets you follow the adventures of a little mermaid, who falls in love with a human prince, but must make a deal with an evil sea witch in order to walk on land. This traditional story is retold in rhyme in this special padded boardbook. You can count how many times the bright little fish appears throughout the story. Lively illustrations and amusing rhyming text make this book ideal for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. When a prince's ship is lost at sea, A mermaid swims to him speedily. She takes him by his royal hand, And tows him safely to dry land. She gazes at the prince, now asleep, And falls in love, true and deep. She swims away, with a cry, I must marry him or die. Read on to find out how she plans, To gain some legs and get her man...
