Daisy and Dobbin were a couple of curious seahorses who lived at the bottom of the sea. In the front yard of their home were the wrecks of ships, castles of coral, and jungles of seaweed where sharks, whales and other monsters lived. They set out to satisfy their curiosity about what lies on the other side of the great chasm. They meet a Chinese mermaid, end up getting caught by a young fisherman off of the coast of New England, and then taken to Boston and beyond.

Gladys Taber (1899-1980) was the author of many books for young people, including her notable Stillmeadow series. She also taught creative writing at Columbia University in the 1920s.

Illustrated by Kurt Wiese (1887-1974), a German-born author and illustrator of children's books and a two-time Caldecott Honor winner. Prior to moving to the United States in 1927, he lived in China, Australia, and Brazil. Among his well known works are his illustrations for Bambi (1929) and The Story about Ping (1933).
