The Little Mermaid

Do you know the story of The Little Mermaid? If you do, you know it is about a mermaid. She dreams of becoming human.

The story was written many years ago. Since then, people have written other books about the story. They’ve also made movies about it. Someone even made a statue of the Little Mermaid! This statue is on a rock in the country of Denmark. The rock is by an area of water where people keep their boats.

Sadly, people have done bad things to the statue. Its head was cut off three times. Someone also cut off its arm. People have also thrown paint on the statue. On the bright side, the mermaid was always fixed or cleaned up.

People take a lot of pictures of the statue. It is the most photographed statue in the country. So it’s important the statue is always ready for the camera!
