"The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."

With this "Happy Thought," Robert Louis Stevenson speaks for all the delights of childhood. But he doesn't stop there. A Child's Garden of Verses, written over a century ago, is filled to the brim with what are usually considered to be the first real poems written for children. This classic volume is an old friend to the generations of readers who were brought up on "I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me/ And what can be the use of him is more than I can see."


A commemorative edition of the classic poetry anthology features the artistic works of a graphic designer from BBC television and includes the author's poetic descriptions of childhood imagination and experience.

First US Edition.

Published in 1994.
