Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Generations of children have gone "up in a swing, up in the air so blue" and to "The Land of Counterpane" with these timeless verses by a beloved author. Master storyteller and poet Robert Louis Stevenson evokes the delights, fears, and wonders of childhood in a memorable series of images and rhymes.
In simple, expressive language, the poet ponders the mysteries of home and the wider world — the nightly dreams of "The Land of Nod," the curious rustle of "Auntie's Skirts," and encounters with the changing tide "At the Sea-side."
This keepsake edition features 100 enchanting pen-and-ink drawings by noted artist Charles Robinson. The playful exuberance of Robinson's Art Nouveau-style images provides a perfect complement to this enduring classic.
