A mermaid who is interested in humans accidentally comes across a prince in trouble. Will she get to learn more about humans than she ever thought? Our retelling of the Little Mermaid focuses on the little mermaid's ability to embrace her curiosity and learn where she really feels she belongs. The moral of this story is that what we think we want may not be what gives us true happiness. The story also features themes of sacrifice, identity, discovery and family. The Little Mermaid is one of Hans Christian Andersen most famous fairy tales. Originally published in 1837, his version of the tale was inspired by various folktales and mythology and featured a not so happy ending. Over the years the story has been adapted with the child audience to have a happier ending.
