If only Annabelle didn’t have those clumsy and weird legs. At night in her dreams, Annabelle is engulfed by a magical underwater world where she meets wonderful creatures and experiences exciting musical adventures. -|-On the birthday of the Sea King, Annabelle sings magnificently, but above anything else she would love to dance… Will she give up her voice to the Sea Witch in order to dance with the Prince?
