A Child's Garden of Verses

A Child's Garden of Verses

by Robert Louis Stevenson Illustrated by Eve Garnett

Touching, joyful, evocative, and beautifully illustrated by Eve Garnett, these 64 poems perfectly capture a child's wonder, imagination, and fascination with everyday things. From the make-believe world of "The Land of the Counterpane" to the simple pleasure of "At the Seaside", the curiosity of "Auntie's Skirts" to the dreams of "Foreign Lands," this delightful collection is a lasting treasure.
