Can someone tell me the name of this book?

When I was little I had a little mermaid story book but it was kinda different. in the end the little mermaid was supposed to kill the prince and it had something to do with cutting her hair and throwing it in the water. Does anyone know the author and name of this book?


I didn't say she killed him I said she was supposed to kill him. thank you all for your answers. I just remember it being in a picture book. But the hans christian anderson one seems to be the story thank you.

    This sounds like the original Hans Christian Anderson version of the Little Mermaid. (Although I'm not sure about the killing the prince bit.)

    I remember one where she has to kill the prince but instead kills herself and these angels carry her from the sea to heaven, but i cant remember the title either.
