Thank you so much for posting these images of "The Little Mermaid". It's a long story, but this is the first book I ever read at my elementary school. I have been trying to find this book for years--all I could remember was the how the sea witch was illustrated. The book was long-ago weeded from my elementary school library and online or library searches just led to an endless stream of illustrated "Little Mermaid" editions, but never the right one. Finally, tonight, completely by chance I happened to see the images you posed online and I realized that at long last I had finally found it. As a librarian and life-long book lover, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for posting these images and this publication information. I'm so happy I could cry. Thank you so much.
Hi J.H., Thank you so, so much for your wonderful comment...and thanks for sharing! You really moved my heart by doing so. Isn't it strange and amazing how childhood memories and book images go hand in hand; I too get so happy (and sentimental) when I see my childhood's books! They brings me back to "a happy land". Thank you for making my day!
