Reader's note

The tone of whimsy and humour in this book is best described by the following which occurs when main character Tom runs his head against a wall...Now running your head against a wall is not pleasant, especially if it is a loose wall, with the stones all set on edge, and a sharp cornered one hits you between the eyes and makes you see all manner of beautiful stars. The stars are very beautiful, certainly; but unfortunately they go in the twenty-thousandth part of a split second, and the pain which comes after them does not...although it has inspired contraversy, The Water Babies is still a classic story and this rare edition is simply filled with endearing illustrations and artwork.
