The Sea Fairies

A book by L. Frank Baum

< read all 1 reviews

This is a delightful fantasy for children by a master writer

  • Oct 22, 2010
L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) wrote many children's books, and achieved enormous well-deserved praise for his books on Oz and Dorothy. This one contains 22 tales and was written in 1911. Baum tells us that he wrote these tales because his many admirers, who were children, wanted information about the beings that live under the sea. Trot, the hero of the tales is a girl, like Dorothy in the Oz stories. An old sailor taught her to love the sea. The sailor told her that "mermaids is fairies, an' ain't meant to be seen by us mortal folk." He explains that mermaids are the most beautiful creatures in the world. They have "pretty faces that smile an' look mighty sweet an' fetchin'." Trot wants to see them, but the sailor says that if a person sees a mermaid, the person will die. One day when she and the sailor are rowing into a cave in the water, a mermaid appears, and so begins the delightful adventures of Trot.
