This edition of "A Child's Garden of Verses" by Robert Louis Stevenson was beautifully illustrated by Ruth Mary Hallock. Hallock's illustrations are beautifully romantic with soft colors and exceptional detail. Views in at the sea side, playing in the nursery, and a party with fairies are only a few of the wonderful scenes in this delightful book. Interspersed with the full color illustrations are black and white smaller illustrations dotted throughout the text.
