Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1885, poet and storyteller Robert Louis Steven­sons classic tribute to the lives of children has delighted readers for more than a century. From flying through the air on a swing to building an imaginary world out of blocks to being tucked into bed for a night of sweet dreams, A Child's Garden of Verses is a joyful celebration of imagination, wonder, and what it means to be a child.

Lavishly illustrated by beloved artist Barbara McClintock, this new unabridged edition of these classic verses is sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of both young and old for years to come.

About the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) spent his early years in poor health, confined to the nursery most of the time. He credited these years with helping him to bring an uncommon understanding of the real and imaginary worlds of childhood play to all of his later writing. His other books include Treasure Island and Kidnapped.
