Thus reads the whimsical, Looking Forward, of this delightful collection. From the sweetness of Land of Nod, to the imaginative dreams of ;Pirate Story; and Travels. Robert Louis Stevensons beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its simplicity and joy.

In this well-known collection of poems, master poet Robert Louis Stevenson captures all the joy and magic of childhood. Tasha Tudor's signature watercolors pay tribute to a simpler time in the past, while celebrating both children and nature. Full-color illustrations.From the Inside Flap:
First published in 1885, Stevenson's verses so truly reflect the feelings of young children--about being small, the bliss of going up in a swing so high, discovering one's shadow, happiness and sorrow and dreaming--that they have never ceased to be an essential part of a child's library. Robinson's beautiful pictures originally appeared in 1896 in the first illustrated edition.
