    great book for a poetry class presentation

    This book was exactly what my 5th grader needed. His teacher wants him to be able to recite a poem by RLS. Instead of downloading one off the internet, I bought this book to encourage him to read more than the one poem minimum. The book was exactly what we needed - RLS's poems geared to kids with illustrations that appealed to their minds eye.

    I love this book

    I LOVE this book--it takes me instantly back to my childhood. The poems are classics, and the illustrations bring the flavor of each poem alive. This illustrator is gifted at creating characters, both human and animal. Her pictures are humorous and mysterious, beautifully colored and full of intriguing detail--just what you want in a children's picture book. A really nice gift.

    Best of the Bunch

    I have always been a fan of the Sterling poetry series but must say that the Robert Louis Stevenson collection is far and away the best of the bunch! It is, without a doubt, the illustrations that set this edition apart from the others. Lucy Corvino manages to capture the expressions of her characters, both human and animal, in a way that perfectly compliments the intent of Stevenson's poems. Kudos to Sterling for finding a uniquely talented illustrator.

    Great Gift Idea!

    Everyone with a small child should have this beautiful book. We all remember and love the Robert Louis Stevenson poems from 'A Child's Garden of Verses', and this selection is some of the most memorable. What really sets this book apart are the very special illustrations! This artist knows how to capture the world as seen through the eyes of a child. Terrific job, whoever you are, Lucy Corvino! Let's have some more books illustrated by you!
