The Hans Christian Andersen original is a more moving tale than popular adaptations might lead you to expect.
This is a truly beautiful story, you'll be transported to the magical underworld gardens of the mermaids. This famous tale is every bit as lovely as Hans Christian Andersen's other masterpiece, The Snow Queen (which is also available on a Yoto card here)
But be warned, it's a long story, and it's very powerful. It might well make you cry. We’re sure that it will stay with you for the rest of your life.
The Little Mermaid longs to experience the human world. On her fifteenth birthday she is at last allowed to rise to the surface. She saves a prince from drowning, and falls in love with him.
