Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poems of childhood combined with Tasha Tudor's idyllic pictures, this is a treasured edition for any bookshelf.
Here is a delightful look at childhood. 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 familes for generations. Originally published with Tasha's illustrations in 1947 in a different form; it was redone in 1981, and it is these illustrations that grace this 2000 edition from Simon & Schuster's "Tasha Tudor Collection."
