This large serpent is at least two hundred feet long and made entirely of blocks of wood. On each block is a letter of the alphabet. The head is a huge square block with a serpent’s face and long, curling, tape-measure tongue.

Serpent golems were created by sea fairies to entertain and teach their children.

Greater serpent golems, sometimes known as A-B-sea serpents, are employed in the nursery of the sea fairies to teach their children letters. Once a year, the A-B-sea serpent takes a vacation with the rattlesnake to swim upriver.

Lesser serpent golems, also known as rattle-snakes, consist of hundreds of rattles, wood, celluloid, and rubber, fastened together with wires. Every time it moves, the rattles tinkle.
