**Received it from Netgalley, for an honest review**
This was an absolute gorgeous graphic novel. It was so beautiful. The drawings were beautiful made and really felt magical on the page. I have always loved Hans Christian Andersen’s stories and loved that it was a rendition of the original story, instead of the Disney version. That story really makes you feel something and even when I already had read the story a lot of times before, I still got choked up near the end when you see The Little Mermaid accept her fate. Because here you could see the pain in the drawings. You can see it her face and her eyes. So amazingly done. Another thing that I loved was the dancing scene on the ship. Because you see different races. a lesbian couple, Frida Kahlo and probably other know people dancing in the picture. Such a beautiful touch and kinda fun when you see who actually is in the picture. So I can definitely recommend this story to everyone. It is easy to read, a good story and has a lot of beautiful drawings you don’t want to miss. I received a copy through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
