Personal Notes

I strongly recommend Mermaid Park by Beth Mayall, which is not a fantasy at all, but rather a YA drama.

I love saying The Little Mermaid in Spanish: La Sirenita!

The Little Mermaid is my overall favorite Disney film. I love Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's score. I love Jodie Benson's voice. I love it all.

Though I appreciate the original story of The Little Mermaid, I can't stand the ending. If you don't know how it ends, go check it out.
