The illustrations are beautiful. I'm trying to find a copy of the book. I'd love to read this version, and then decide how I feel about the illustrations. In Sulamith Wulfing's illustrations, The Little Mermaid is actually a child, completely innocent even when totally nude, and far from alluring. I enjoy comparing different artist's versions.
