Here's the image: where's the tale?

"The Little Mermaid"

She appears on the cover of Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales. She is the product of the imagination of a 6 year old in Sweden.

She appears to be missing the ubiquitous tail. But don't forget that this is a story of transformation. And the hair is perfect!
