5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Fans of the Movie
My son has been smitten with Ariel ever since he saw her live show at Disney World--and even more so since he got the 2-Disc Plantinum edition of The Little Mermaid!

This 96-page hardcover book tells the tale of the exuberant red-haired mermaid, Ariel, as she pines after Prince Eric and launches a dangerous quest to become human.

The Special Edition...

2.0 out of 5 stars Smelled like cigarette smoke
The book was advertised as new, but clearly had been used. The book also has a strong scent of cigarette smoke! I am airing it out in hopes that one day it will smell better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Fans of the Movie, November 14, 2006
This review is from: Disney's the Little Mermaid (Hardcover)
My son has been smitten with Ariel ever since he saw her live show at Disney World--and even more so since he got the 2-Disc Plantinum edition of The Little Mermaid!

This 96-page hardcover book tells the tale of the exuberant red-haired mermaid, Ariel, as she pines after Prince Eric and launches a dangerous quest to become human.

The Special Edition book features beautiful holographic detailing on the cover, as well as full-color illustrations throughout. It looks to me that these illustrations were taken *directly* from the movie.

It's a long, chapterless book (for a child)--the most comprehensive Little Mermaid book I've seen thus far. This means that you'll see Ariel sign Ursula's devious contract, the French chef chasing Sebastian with a butcher knife, Ariel and Eric about to kiss in the lagoon ("Kiss the Girl"), Flotsam and Jetsam (Ursula's electric eels) trying to drown Prince Eric, and much more.

Fans of The Little Mermaid will adore this special edition Disney book, but if you're skittish about your little one seeing the movie (or have reservations after allowing them to see it and experiencing some of the frightening sequences such as Ursula turning into a giant monster) then you may want to pass on this book (since it doesn't edit out the scary parts).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Adaptation Of Disney's Classic Film, October 14, 2008
This review is from: Disney's the Little Mermaid (Hardcover)
Disney's "The Little Mermaid Special Edition" storybook is an excellent choice for the family with young readers and children who need a bedtime story. This book has brilliant illustrations (that appear to have been taken directly from the film) that pop off of the page. Bright blues and greens highlight each page.

What's even better about this book is that it is loyal to the Disney version of the classic "Little Mermaid" story. Nothing is skipped over and ever detail from the film manages to be covered.

Recommended to anybody who has a youngster who's wanting to read a "big" book or, as stated before, any family with kids who need bedtime stories. I highly recommend this book.
