the little mermaid
The Little Mermaid is a fairytale that was written in the 1700’s by a Danish man named Hans Christian Andersen. This story is filled with morals and sacrifice about a princess mermaid who is the youngest of her 5 sisters who longed to see the land and heard stories about it from her grandmother. She was not allowed above the surface until she was 15. After turning 15 and saving a young handsome prince’s life from a shipwreck she not only fell inlove with him but unlike the disney movie she also wanted an immortal soul because mermaids turn to foam when they die while humans were considered immortal cause they go to heaven when they die. She had to be human and marry the prince in order to obtain her wish for an immortal soul. I don’t want to spoil the ending but, I will say that once you read the original story and watch the disney version, they are almost two different stories. Reading this story really opened my mind and made me think about morals about life, sacrifice and romance. I really enjoyed reading it. I would give this story 4 stars out of 5.
