Product Description

Tom, a young chimney sweep, falls into a river after being mistakenly thought a thief. He dies and is transformed into a "water baby", thus beginning a set of adventures that help to form his moral character. When Tom attempts to help his mean old master, he's allowed to return to human form to become a "Great Man of Science" because of his willingness to do things he does not like.

Paralleling the story of Christian redemption, this traditional moral tale also concerns itself with English questions and thoughts of 1800s. Incorporating arguments against the exploitation of the poor, child labour, and scientists who won't accept evolution, Kingsley weaves in Sir Roderick Murchison, Professor Richard Owen, Professor Thomas Henry Huxley, and Darwin.

This book also contains evidence of the prejudices of the day, including insulting references to Americans, Jews, Blacks, Catholics, and Irish. 214 pages, softcover.
