Waterbabies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby by Charles Kingsley

WaterbabiesWaterbabies by Charles Kingsley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A delightful Victorian fairy tale about de-evolution and learning strength, morality and character. Sometimes the narrator is a bit heavy-handed, but overall, it is an enjoyable romp through the waters with Tom as he learns the right way to play, treat others, and the consequences of being bad.

Rather fun, and filled with tons of Victorian pop culture and budding ideologies.

  1. Charles Kingsley is my great-great-great grandfather (I think that's enough greats).... I read this when I was a child and was completely freaked out for some reason... haha, it's downright weird.

  2. What a relative to have! I could see being a bit freaked out as a child though!
