Once there was a little mermaid who fell in love with a human
boy . . . The story may be familiar, but Lisbeth Zwerger''s art
makes this fairytale seem brand-new. This Jubilee edition,
celebrating 200 years of Hans Christian Andersen, is superbly
illustrated in Zwerger''s signature style. Known for her popular
and award-winning editions of classics such as The Wizard of Oz and
Alice in Wonderland, Zwerger is herself the recipient of the Hans
Christian Andersen Medal for lasting contributions to children''s
literature. The Little Mermaid is sure to win her new fans, and to
delight her old ones.
The text is an all-new translation by Anthea Bell, and includes
many lovely and poignant details that may be new to even those who
think they know the little mermaid''s story well.
