    I was given a free copy for my school library, the book was good and quick to read.

    I know this is a children's book and that it is designed for children to be able to read the Disney story of the little mermaid, but I still loved this so much. I read this with my significant other as a bedtime rutine. We switched between being the reader and the listener, and how we felt at each bedtime reading (how tired we were or if we had a day off from work/school etc.) decided how many pages we read. Some nights it could be just 2 and other nights it could be up to 12.

Some nights it could be just 2 and other nights it could be up to 12. We also work at different times of the day, so sometimes it would be no reading, but that only made the nights we had the time more special to me. This cute story, about my favourite Disney princesse Ariel, made story time 10x better too<3 I recommend reading children's books to each other if you are a couple that likes reading or have a childish/fun mind, because it really takes the intimacy of the relationship to a next level. But only if it suits both people in said relationship of course. Now.... what bedtime story do we read next?

    La sirenita siempre será mi historia Disney favorita. Me ha encantado adentrarme entre las páginas de este libro, leer la historia y ver las ilustraciones y bocetos originales, así como conocer un poco a sus creadores. No puedo esperar a leer más libros de la colección de Los tesoros de la animación.

    Ok I defy anyone who’s watched the movie to try and read this book without bursting into song!! I also really wanna watch the movie again now! I love the concept artwork mixed in with the story, it really feels like a piece of history, I loved it! Ps I’m not biased at all, it’s just my favourite Disney movie! Haha x

    For me, this book was worth the price of purchase for the beautiful endpapers alone. The book says the artwork is by Andy Gaskill, artist and imagineer. Beautiful work! Lily Murray does a good job adapting the plot to text. Quite a bit of original dialogue is sprinkled throughout. I liked seeing the concept art throughout the book; little things like an early sketch where Flounder appears to be a dolphin, Triton is thinner with an orange tail, etc. It's fun to see the development to the final ve For me, this book was worth the price of purchase for the beautiful endpapers alone.

    The presentation here is gorgeous, a clothbound hardback with ribbon bookmark and delicious paperstock. My only complaint is that the art - the reason I grabbed a copy - isn’t always great printing quality. This will definitely be a hit with the target audience- although Flounder fans like myself may be a little sad. The story, understandable condensed, has pretty much erased his presence and character.

    A lovely picture book to introduce new readers not only to the story of the Little Mermaid, but also to the idea of how much art and hard work went into making the original film. The book contains a glossary of animation terms and credits several prominent artists who made the artwork so that budding animation fans can learn about the field. The writing is stilted at times but this book is really about the art, and in that regard it’s beautiful.

    I loved this, but I knew that I would love it before I even read it because I love the film so much! Despite it being a book for kids (although I would not give this book to a kid because it is too pretty), it was still a really enjoyable read! Although this might just be because of how much I already love the film - if you don’t already enjoy Disney/the little mermaid then I don’t think it would be a fun read. The only things stopping it from getting a five star rating is the fact that it just I loved this, but I knew that I would love it before I even read it because I love the film so much!

Also, where is Flounder? :( Other than that, it was great and the Animated Classics Edition is so beautiful!!

    This edition of The Little Mermaid is a beautiful addition to any bookshelf - for grown ups for kiddies! It features stunning end pages, a foiled cover, and illustrations throughout. I highly recommend it!⁠ ⁠ Thank you @scholastic_au for sending a copy my way.⁠
