Robert Louis Stevenson's "Happy Thought" betokens all the joy and wonder of A Child's Garden of Verses. The poetic musings of this well-loved classic recapture childhood mysteries that range from the everyday rituals of home ("The Land of Nod," "Escape at Bedtime," and "My Bed Is a Boat") to the curiosities of a wider world ("Foreign Lands," "Pirate Story," and "Where Go the Boats?"). This reproduction of a 1940 publication is enriched by 67 wistful illustrations, 16 of them in full color, by noted children's book illustrator Fern Bisel Peat. Readers of all ages will treasure this keepsake edition of Stevenson's timeless poetry.
