Staff Reviews

Princesses are difficult to buy for. Not only does every gift need to have drama and romance, it also has to pass a parental inspection. This book solves the princess gift problem with ease. Although it is not pink or sparkly, it is incredibly beautiful and very dramatic. The text is a slightly abridged version of the Hans Christian Andersen original, but it's the pop-ups that make this book so noteworthy. Robert Sabuda is a pop-up genius; his previous books include Encyclopedia Prehistorica and other classics like Beauty & the Beast. Just like those previous bestsellers, The Little Mermaid pushes pop-up engineering to the limits. There is an enormous pop-up of a ship, including rigging, while on another page the paper flips inside out to create a magnificent wedding arch, which should satisfy any princess. Each page contains many other inner pages, with pop-ups of their own. This book is a rich treasure and perfect for royalty of all ages. -- Clare Doornbos
