No volume of children's poetry has left such an indelible mark on so many generations as this Robert Louis Stevenson classic. First published in 1885, Stevenson's idyllic tribute to the joys of childhood has never been out of print. Small wonder that Donna Green wanted to illustrate Stevenson's vision with her own views of childhood idealized. Her nearly twenty timeless images will one day spark fond memories for youngsters who will recall mother, father, grandmother, or grandfather reading aloud about shadows, tin soldiers and tiny fairies.
