Book Description

3 Dec 2007
Travel to a marvelous old mill on a riverbank. A magnificent land where golden apples grow, and a snowy garden that s perfect for sleigh riding. Ride on a swing! Imagine your bed is a boat! Or build an incredible block city filled with castles and palaces, temples and docks! A wondrous world awaits you in this collection of sixty-one poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, from the make believe journeys of Picture Books in Winter to the simple pleasures of At the Seaside, the welcome companionship of The Unseen Playmate, to the dreams of Foreign Lands. Gyo Kujikawa s beautiful illustrations captivate young and old alike, and will add to the fun of reading these timeless poems. Her delightedly detailed paintings of children at play give Stevenson s magical imaginings new life and charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic 5 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was given this book as a child and now that I am a grandparent have bought it so that we can read it to our grandchildren. It deals with what are timeless elements in early childhood which would otherwise never be mentioned or ignored in the rush to the electronic distractions that have taken over 'modern' life.
This particular edition is beautifully produced and illustrated

3.0 out of 5 stars Great poems, not the edition shown 20 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
All the poems I wanted, but not the edition shown in the picture. No colour pictures, just small line drawings. Lovely line drawings but not suitable for what I wanted. Disappointed.

Well illustrated but try to be more appropriate to late 19th century.
