Dear Isabelle, I sincerely enjoyed The Fish Princess. It was a great story and reminded me of fairy tales from when i was much younger. The length was perfect and the amount of detail and exquisite description really made the story. The Fish Princess is about a princess who was born to a royal family but ends up being a fish. At first it is assumed that she is a mermaid, and everyone in the royal family neglects her because she is different and clearly not human. She understands that she is different, and constantly feels rejected and upset about her life. Her older sister is beautiful and is to be married soon, and she is ugly and fishy and an outcast.

The witch tells her that with one kiss her wish can come true, so the Princess goes back to the palace with that knowledge.

The cook, not knowing that this fish on the floor is really the princess, picks it up and chips its head off for dinner. This story was really well written. The element of surprise at the end was perfectly executed and we really got a great feel for the members of the princess's family and the royal palace. The description of the food at the final meal was really great and made the reader feel as if they were really there. This is a job well done. Thanks, Erica Broome...

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
