Perhaps one of the most popular of Stevenson's works, A Child's Garden of Verses, first published in 1885, is regarded universally as an outstanding example of the greatest recollections of childhood in verse. We are delighted to announce the republication of this fine facsimile edition. Featuring the superb illustrations of Charles Robinson, and including the original advertisements from the 1886 edition, this volume has a nostalgic feel which complements Stevenson's evocative verses with elegance and flair. Dedicated to Stevenson's nanny, Alison Cunningham, 'from her boy', this childhood classic features favourites from The Land of Nod to the immortalisation of Leerie, The Lamplighter. Altogether, this beautiful edition is a fitting tribute to a wonderful writer and one which will continue to appeal to lovers of literature, young and old.

Publishers Weekly, 2004-03-08 A plethora of poetry books arrive just in time for National Poetry Month. Now available in a board book edition, A Child's Garden of Verses, compiled by Cooper Edens, pairs eight of Robert Louis Stevenson's poems with turn-of-the-century illustrations to captivate a child's imagination. For instance, "Happy Thought" ("The world is so full of a number of things,/ I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings") is embedded like a placard within a pen-and-ink by E. Mars (1900), while opposite, a 1940 illustration by Ruth Mary Hallock depicts a happy assembly of children and kittens, gathering for a snack break after a game of croquet. (Mar.)
