Publisher's Synopsis

A stunning new edition with deluxe cover treatments, ribbon markers, luxury endpapers and gilded edges. The unabridged text is accompanied by a Glossary of Victorian and Literary terms produced for the modern reader. A masterpiece of nostalgia, Charles Kingsley's Victorian classic tells of Tom, a young chimney sweep who falls into a river and, becoming a water-baby, is guided back to humanity through a series of adventures, each with a moral lesson. Part of the fascination with the book today is the reflection of Victorian-era debates about poverty, working children and the eternal conflict between nature vs nurture. The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library.
