It is rare to find such an excellent book on the title of Water Spirits. The book not only shares legends from around the world about Mermaids, Sirens, Water Nymphs, Sea Monsters, etc. but also gives some great illustrations on them as well. This is not a book with modern made-up tales of such beings, they explore actual traditional stories and mythologies, even going back to ancient greek myth and early oriental tales that have been around a long time. I have yet to find a another book that does the same on such a scale. I wish The Enchanted World series from Time Life Books would continue with new and updated editions on their many interesting topics.

It is impossible to own only one of the Enchanted World books, and this is a great addition or starting point for any collection. I loved the entire book; the pictures were great, as was the weaving of stories into the fantastical encyclopedia. The only thing that needs to be said is that it is a beautiful book.

This book is fantastic for anyone who enjoys reading about water spirits. I first found this book at the library I loved it so much I had to have it. Once you read this book you will want to read the rest of the series.

this is not what i was expecting front cover is very misleading i was so excited to buy a book called water spirits i was expecting great story's of old with beautiful illustrations but the inside art is very poor i felt as if it were illustrated for a much younger group were s the cover art made it look so much more appealing for a collector of sorties and art so if your looking for a book with stunning art along with the stories then this is not the book for you

I'm not sure how I stumbled upon these books, but I am so glad I did!! Since then I have been collecting them, and enjoy every single one of them!! They are beautiful, fun, and full of different stories from all over. They are also excellent for display.
