Stunning pop art in this picturebook, which follows a young Ariel who's never been to the surface
before, but discovers human things on the sea floor and has her imagination captured in a huge way. Her
sisters and father aren't as supportive as Flounder, but Ariel has her own ideas now that a whole new
world has been opened to her.
Treasures of Old (2005)
The Storytime Treasures Library had a bunch of original storybook tie-ins with various films, and
for The Little Mermaid there was this one, a story about how the neighbouring kingdom's rule King
Mariner's visits Atlantica, and how Ariel mistakenly assumes that it'll all be very boring for her. WRONG!
Ariel's New Friend (1994)
This Golden Book is a tie-in with the TV series episode
Urchin, and features a slightly different way
that Ariel and Urchin met and became friends.
A Whale of a Time (1998)
Ariel, Flounder and Sebastian befriend a baby whale, and the story has a couple of
similarities with the TV series episode A Whale of a Tale. This
story was also published under the title The Big Baby.
