Interesting Fact:

With its first publication in 1863, The Water-Babies by Reverend Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) became a best seller in England and, soon after, in America. The Water-Babies tells the story of Tom, a young chimney sweep, who escapes the toil and drudgery of his miserable apprenticeship through his magical transformation by fairies into a "water-baby."
