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.
