Summary

When Tom, a young chimney sweep, falls into a river and drowns, he is transformed from a 12-year-old boy who has known nothing but brutality and poverty into a "water-baby." In an underwater world surrounded by fairies, insects and water nymphs, he soon discovers a new life of adventure and excitement. Gloriously illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell, Charles Kingsley's The Water-Babies is a truly special story to treasure.
