When Tom, a young chimney sweep, falls into a river and drowns, he is transformed from a twelve-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 with line drawings by Mabel Lucie Attwell, and with a ribbon marker and a specially commissioned foreword, this beautiful hardback Macmillan Classics edition of Charles Kingsley's The Water-Babies, first published in 1863 , is a truly special gift to treasure.
