    In Anna Kemp's powerful reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, Princess Coral saves the life of Prince Eldo and falls in love with the world of humans. Disregarding her father's wishes she seeks out the Sea Witch who gives her a vial of potion that will enable her to walk on two legs.
