Far out at sea, where the water is the bluest of blue, lived a Little Mermaid with her five sisters in an enchanting underwater city surrounded by beautiful flowers and exotic fish of all kinds. Fascinated by stories of the world beyond where the animals and humans dwell, they eagerly awaited their turn to the surface. So, as decree allowed, the Little Mermaid was permitted to rise out of the sea to sit on the rocks in the moonlight on her sixteenth birthday. In this strange new world, she saves a charming prince from certain death and falls in love. But to be with him, the Little Mermaid must make a pact with the Sea Witch, with tragic consequences.
