"Caves and bridges and storeys and galleries in which the ice-fairies live."
"And the fairies of the stream bore her away."
"When the fairy brought her she was the most beautiful little girl."
"There sat upon a rock the most graceful creature...and behold, it was Ellie."
"Out looked a tremendous old brass blunderbuss."
"Whichever way you are going, you are going wrong."
"The steam as it rushed up rasped away the sides of the hole."
"Pandora by name; which means all the gifts of the gods."
"He was all over pickles just like a sea-egg."
"And then St. Brandan taught the water-babies."
"She went quietly over the wall after Tom."
"The dairymaid jumped up and gave chase to Tom."
"Inside it sat his friend the lobster."
"Under the snow-white coverlet lay the most beautiful little girl."
"They heard the whole story from Miss Ellie."
"And there he saw the water forests."
