Oxford University Press: April 1997
"Far out to sea the water is as blue as the petals of the loveliest cornflower, and as clear as the purest glass, but it is very deep, deeper than any anchorage chain can reach, and many church towers would have to be put one on top of another to reach from the bottom to the surface of the water. Down there live the mer-folk." From the very beginning of "The Little Mermaid" we know we are in the hands of a master storyteller. Hans Andersen wrote over one hundred sixty fairy tales and stories and this collection features twenty-six of his very best tales.
