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.
