I haven't seen this movie that this book is based off of, but although this was a nice storybook they left out quite a bit it just didn't read as smooth as it probably should have. If you like Barbie then you'll like it but it wasn't anything great for me and even my 3 year old granddaughter was kind of bored with it.

Beautiful pictures which capture my 6 yr olds imagination. Good story, but told so simplistically it barely makes sense. The names are too complicated for normal a 6yr old to read herself.

This book was about a Barbie and when she went under the water, her hair turned pink. Her mother was in trouble, so she helped her mother. She met some mermaids who gave her three tasks. One: to find a magic comb. Another: to find a fish. And the last one to get the Queen's necklace. She snacked the necklace, and the queen was so mad that she put Merliah in the whirlpool, but then Merliah got her own mermaid tail, and then the queen got trapped in the whirlpool, and her mother was free.

This is an easy reader shorter version of the movie. Her hair turns pink when she goes under water and after accomplishing the tasks she's asked she ends up with a mermaid tail and saves her mom.

Obsessive reading for 5 1/2 year old girls who can now quote the movie. At least she's reading.
