Second volume in the Eyes and No Eyes series, introduces children to the variety of plant and animal life around ponds and rivers. Through life stories of frogs, dragon-flies, fish, water-bugs, water birds, otters, and voles, children's interest in water creatures is awakened. An exhibit of water plants at a flower show concludes the volume.

First published by Cassell in 1903, the illustrations were originally sketches or paintings. This reprint from Living Books Press includes a few of those pictures, but also incorporates many more modern color photographs (which may be of similar creatures and plants native to other regions than the UK). The formatting is more compact than in the Yesterday's Classics edition, but it is still very clear and easy-to-read.
