Tonight, I'll be reading another excerpt from L. Frank Baum's, "The Sea Fairies", picking up more or less where we left off. Baum is best known for, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". "The Sea Fairies" is a magical underwater fantasy following Mayre Griffiths, nicknamed Trot, as she fulfills her wish of seeing a mermaid for the first time. Her adventure is filled with a journey through an underwater kingdom where she meets kings, queens, and villains along the way. When we left off, Trot and her old sailor friend, Cap'n Bill are paddling on a row boat along the shore and looking at sea caves.
