The Little Water Sprite is born in a home at the bottom of a mill pond, but he quickly becomes bored of his underwater life. He knows there is a wide world beyond his living room, and he goes out to explore. In the pond, he makes friends with Cyprian the carp and encounters a terrifying nine-eyed lamprey, but his greatest adventures occur when he reaches land. Gebhardt-Gayler's illustrations are enchanting even to the littlest non-readers. This tale of adventure is sure to appeal to little explorers, and children will be begging to hear it again and again.
For ages 5 and up.
