A Child's Garden of Verses

Written by Robert Louis Stevenson

Illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa

A Child's Garden of Verses Synopsis

Originally published in 1885, A Child's Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevenson's beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from The Land of Nod to the playful, ever-popular My Shadow. Of the many available editions, Gyo Fujikawa's is one of the sweetest and most personal. Illustrated in 1957, it was her very first book - and she evokes a simpler, more innocent time that should profoundly appeal to today's audiences. It is a gift that every child will treasure.
