No volume of children’s poetry has left such an indelible mark on so many generations of devoted readers as this Robert Louis Stevenson classic. First published in 1885, Stevenson’s sentimental tribute to the joys of childhood has stood the test of time–it has never been out of print. And so thorough was his understanding of the child psyche and that special place all children create–a world of imagination filled with castles and kings, clipper ships, pirates, and faraway places–that grown ups have also adopted it as a favorite reminder of the imaginary world in which they too once lived.
