The Little Mermaid

    The Little Mermaid is a story about a mermaid named Ariel that wanted to become a human.  She was very curious about human things she found on the bottom of the sea so she would go to the surface and let her sea gull friend, Scuttle, tell her all about them.  One day when Ariel went to the surface she saw a sailor named Prince Eric and it was love at first sight.

    Ariel's dad, King Triton, found out Ariel had been to the surface again and out of anger he destroyed all her human belongings leaving Ariel crying.  Ursula, the Sea Witch, saw Ariel crying and decided to make a deal with her.  She was going to turn Ariel into a human for three days, but the price was her voice.  The deal was sealed and Ariel was on her way to find the handsome Prince she was in love with.

    Prince Eric saw Ariel on the beach and took her back to his palace.  Over the next few days Prince Eric grew to like Ariel more and more.  The next day Ariel found out he was going to marry another young maiden and she got very upset.  The one thing Ariel didn't know was that the Prince was under a spell and the young maiden was Ursula, the Sea Witch, in disguise.

    Ariel's friend Scuttle stalled the wedding and got Ariel's voice back for her.  When Eric realized it was her that could sing so beautifully he went to kiss her, but it was too late and Ariel was turned back into a mermaid.  Prince Eric went to save Ariel from the Sea Witch and he killed her with his boat.  Once King Triton realized how much Ariel loved this prince he turned her back into a human.  Ariel and the Prince  got married that day and lived happily ever after.
