Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a classic, illustrated edition of one of the best loved poetry collections in the world. Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 pictures by the most distinguished children's book artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this edition of A Child's Garden of Verses contains all the poems that appeared in the original book, published over 100 years ago.

This is a volume to be cherished for a lifetime: by parents and by grandparents who grew up with the poems and, most of all, by children who are being introduced to this extraordinary collection for the first time.

Synopsis:

This beautiful board book features eight of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poems with antique illustrations by some of the best-known children's book illustrators of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including Charles Robinson, H.

Synopsis:

A collection of poems evoking the world and feelings of childhood. Illustrated with antique pictures by some well-known children's book illustrators.
