A Child's Garden of Verses

The 64 poems in «A Child’s Garden of Verses» are a masterly evocation of childhood from the author of «Treasure Island» and «Kidnapped». They are full of delightful irony, wit and the fantasy worlds of childhood imagination, and introduce for the first time the Land of Nod. But they are also touched with a genuine and gentle pathos at times as they recall a world which seems so far away from us now.
This edition, which includes Charles Robinson’s charming illustrations and vignettes, is described as the definitive edition by «The Oxford Companion to Children’s Literature».
