Illustrated by Cooper Edens.
This beautiful board book features eight of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poems with antique illustrations by some of the best-known children's book illustrators of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including Charles Robinson, H Willebeek Le Mair and Jessie Willcox Smith.
Children's imaginations can roam freely through simple, evocative verses that explore the wonders of exotic lands, the magic of day passing into night, the sheer joy of swinging through the sun-filled air, and the cosiness of dreaming in front of a fire on a winter's night. The pictures, brimming with colour and lush detail, brilliantly compliment the prose.
