The Water Babies : The Fairy Tale for a Land-baby Paperback



When Tom, an ill-treated little chimney-sweep, jumps into a clear, cool stream to clean himself something magical happens; he is turned into a tiny water baby by the fairies.

He enters a strange, magical underwater world, and travels beyond the world's end to the other end-of-nowhere, getting into all sorts of scrapes and encountering creatures beautiful and frightening along the way.

He also learns many important lessons - it is a voyage of discovery that Tom will never forget.
