Product Description

Ariel's sister Aquata is having a birthday celebration. It's going to be a fun-filled day, complete with a special concert, and Ariel is excited about visiting her family. If only Prince Eric could go under the sea, too. At the party, Aquata wishes that Ariel could stay with them forever. At that very moment, a rare solar eclipse hits, and the wish comes true! Will Ariel ever be able to break the spell and return to Eric—and her life as a human?

HASH(0xa5aca648) out of 5 stars Great story, but recommended age range is off by a few years. March 7 2011
By A. Kuntzman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought several of these books for my daughter, who is 5. The recommended age range is from 4 - 8 years but these books are not meant for children at the younger end of the age range, especially those just learning to read. There are very few pictures and it definitely did not hold my daughter's interest, even though she loves Ariel and the other Disney princesses. I would say these books are more appropriate for kids aged 7 or 8 and up, depending on their reading ability. I had planned to read a few pages each night to teach her how to follow along with a longer story, but forget that. Kids that age want a story that can be read from start to finish at one time. Still, good books for slightly older children.

My 6 year old (she reads very well for her age) daughter loved this book. She could not put it down. She finished the book in about three days. She just recently began reading on her own and this is the perfect start for independent readers.

HASH(0xa5699150) out of 5 stars Perfect for 1st graders Dec 18 2012
By Shopper1972 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My first grader loved this book! Unlike some of the other chapter books for her age, this one had beautiful color pictures every few pages, which is a nice transition from her younger picture books to chapter books. The text is still a bit advanced for her reading level, but she was enagaged in the story and looked forward to reading a couple of chapters each night.

HASH(0xa560b060) out of 5 stars Good for Early-Reading Princess-Lovers March 16 2013
By Kate - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My daughter is four and a half and just starting to read. I was looking for some longer books that I could read TO her along the way and she requested they be about princesses. I was wary because I'm not a big fan of the Disney ladies but I've found that the plots in this book series are generally better than the originals! Since the stories all take place after Happily Ever After, the gals can have adventures beyond "finding and capturing a man." :-)

In this story, Ariel has to solve a mystery when a young girl she's been teaching goes missing. It's a fun story line and my daughter enjoyed listening to it. We read a couple chapters a night and I liked being able to introduce her to the idea of a story that unfolds over time -- unlike the short picture books we read in a single sitting.

HASH(0xa560bd38) out of 5 stars Enjoyable New Take On the Princess Stories Aug. 2 2014

I read this "chapter book" to my six year old grandaughter in two sessions over two days. She absolutely loved it, and we were able to discuss the characters & happenings as we read. It had mamy good elements of character & plot. I will definitely look for other books in the series. Older children would enjoy reading it themselves. A new twist to the princess stories!
