cover waterbabies

I Found a copy of Waterbabies yesterday
and almost finished it :o)

The Water-Babies,
A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby is a children's novel
by the Reverend Charles Kingsley.
Written in 1862–1863 as a serial
for Macmillan's Magazine,
it was first published in its entirety in 1863.

The book was extremely popular in England during
its day, and was a mainstay of British children's
literature for many decades.

Gutenberg has two other editions of "The Water-Babies".
One with illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith

and the other with illustrations by Warwick Goble

I can't decide which I like best...

I loved that story as a kid. I am not sure if mine was an abridged version, but it is a great story!
