The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley
From the paper:
The novel, charmingly and vividly told, is a work of art that was brought about by Kingsley?s concerns about the treatment of children, and his desire for social reform. Kingsley, a parson in the Church of England, a novelist, a Christian Socialist, a Protestant controversialist, poet, and an amateur naturalist managed to work every one of his life?s fondest beliefs and endeavors into Water Babies.
