5.0 out of 5 stars I've never forgotten it, 18 May 2005
I was born in 1987 so I suppose I was about 6 when we got the hardback copy of this book. I remember being absolutely captivated by it. It is very intelligent - instead of talking down to children, it encourages them to think higher. There is such an appreciation of the eels' otherworldliness which really appealed to me as a child: the language and the illustrations work together so well to put the story across. I remember absolutely loving this book, and I have never forgotten it. Even now the mere mention of the Sargasso Sea sends shivers down my spine. This book is informative, wise and absolutely enchanting. It has stayed with me all my life - I would recommend it to anybody.
