A sampling of poems from Stevenson's 1885 collection, with illustrations reflecting the era when the poems were first written
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
No volume of children's poetry has left such an indelible mark on so many generations of devoted readers as this Robert Louis Stevenson classic. First published in 1885, Stevenson's sentimental tribute to the joys of childhood has stood the test of time--it has never been out of print. And so thorough was his understanding of the child psyche and that special place all children create--a world of imagination filled with castles and kings, clipper ships, pirates, and faraway places--that grown ups have also adopted it as a favorite reminder of the imaginary world in which they too once lived.
Small wonder that over the years an entire galaxy of great artists has chosen to illustrate Stevenson's work. Thus has New England artist Donna Green, noted for her paintings depicting children at play, joined this illustrious list.
Leaves From a Child's Garden of Verses will be cherished for the joyous view of our youth it presents. Donna Green's timeless images, in harmony with Stevenson's whimsical text, will spark fond memories for the reader, who will recall mother, father, grandmother, or grandfather reading aloud about tin soldiers, shadows, and fairies.About the Author:
Donna Green spent her early years on her grandparents' New England farm where she learned to value the serenity and independence of country life. Self-taught, she began exhibiting her paintings when she was just fifteen. Now she has eight illustrated books, two dozen limited-edition art prints and a variety of note cards to her credit, all produced in her own cottage studio.
