Publisher's Summary

Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of 66 poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Tasha Tudor's watercolor paintings evoke a simpler time in the past, and celebrate two of the things she loves most -- children and nature. Her talents are the perfect match for these inspiring poems, making this a handsome gift edition that will be cherished by families for generations.

So Disappointing

The poems are beautiful but you would never know it from this version. They are badly read with little expression and the titles are omitted so it is impossible to know when one ends and the next begins. The pace is too fact and the reader has made beautiful poetry sound no more interesting than reciting a page from the phone book. If I could rate this with less than one star I would, I'm so disappointed with this purchase.

Uplifting

I had this book as a child and even now I find that those familiar lines and comforting rhythms soothing and uplifting. Judith Anderson has the perfect voice (in my opinion) for these poems, reading with enthusiasm and warmth, it is almost impossible to remain miserable after listening to this lovely audiobook.
