Prince of Song and Sea by Linsey Miller - OPTIONAL

 Prince of Song and Sea by Linsey Miller, 345 pages. Disney, 2022. $18

Language: G (0 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (two battles)



Prince Eric has been cursed – if he kisses anyone who is not his true love, he will die. That makes finding a queen a huge problem. When he is rescued by a mystery girl with a beautiful voice, he is sure that she is his true love. Eric needs to track down the witch who cursed his mother – an evil sea witch who has been the cause of not his kingdom’s problems, but of kingdoms up and down the coast for many years.

A look at the Disney Little Mermaid tale through the eyes of the Prince, with some added depth to Eric’s story. Interestingly, the book gives Eric’s mother (who is missing) a large role in the plot. If your students are liking the Disney Twisted Tales, then this should be an easy add to your collection. One of the characters presents as non-binary; there is an LGBT couple.
