9780026890939: A Child's Garden of Verses

When I am grown to mans estate. I shall be very proud and great. And tell the other girls and boys. Not to meddle with my toys. 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. Originally published in 1885, A Childs Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation.

Product Description:

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.
