Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of sixty-six poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Tasha Tudor's watercolor paintings evoke a simpler time in the past, and celebrate two of the things she loves most—children and nature. Her talents are the perfect match for these inspiring poems, making this a handsome gift edition that will be cherished by families for generations.

Robert Louis Stevenson the writer of these hard to put down poems understood how to intertain children. I loved and admired his good poems. I tried to make up poems as good as his but did't get anywere with it. I recomend this book to ages 8 up.

Written mostly from a child's point of view, these masterfully constructed poems capture the beauty of everyday life, and offer a window into the soaring imagination of children. Be prepared to build block cities, climb mountains of hay, and swing higher than ever before!
