Product Overview

Scottish novelist, poet and essayist Robert Louis Stevenson dedicated A Child's Garden ofVerses to Alison Cunningham, the nurse of his early childhood years in Edinburgha??a time whose essence he strove to recapture in the sixty-four poems of this long-treasured collection. Here, in The Land of Counterpane and The Land of Nod, and in such delightful lyrics as My Bed Is a Boat, Autumn Fires and Windy Nights, are rhymes and images children and their parents have cherished together since A Child's Garden of Verses was first published in 1885.
Alternately humorous and whimsical, grave and fearful, courageous and determined, the poems touchingly voice the many moods and currents of a child's imaginings. All sixty-four poems are reprinted in this edition in large, easy-to-read type. New illustrations by Thea Kliros capture the magical spirit of this beloved classic of children's literature.
