Once, long ago there was a beautiful little mermaid with skin as pale as the palest rose petals and eyes the colour of the ocean itself. One day she swims up to the surface of the sea, where she catches a glimpse of Prince Caspar or board a salling ship and falls deeply in love. Ian Beck's powerful storytelling and jewelled illustrations bring this enchanting, timeless tale to life, making it the perfect gift for little girls everywhere!
IAN BECK is a familiar name to the Doubleday/Corgi lists with his previous successful picture books. A freelance illustrator for over twenty years (including such notable artwork as the record cover for Elton John's Yellow Brick Road album), Ian turned to writing and illustrating children's books on the birth of his own first child.
