Imagination runs wild in Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poem about a child's daydream.

As a child growing up in Scotland, Robert Louis Stevenson always kept two books in his pocket ? one to read and one in which to write.
Kim Fernandes is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator. Her books include Sleepy Little Mouse and Busy Little Mouse. She lives in southern Ontario.
Kindergarten-Grade 2-"The Little Land" is not one of the memorable poems in Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses-lines like "To the fairy land afar/Where the Little People are;/Where the clover-tops are trees./And the rain-pools are the seas,/And the leaves like little ships/Sail about on tiny trips" seem a mere step above greeting-card verse. What is above the ordinary is the quality of the detailed color illustrations. Using a modeling compound, Fernandes has created a three-dimensional dream world, but she needs a richer text for her talent.
