Editorial Reviews

Drawing on old maps, contemporary drawings and paintings, portraits and other archive material, the excellent Famous Authors series not only presents a factual outline of the writers' lives, but also conveys a clear visual picture of the social and historical background to their writing. Recommended for all ages. THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE

Scottish novelist, essayist, and poet Robert Louis Stevenson contributed many beloved classics to the world of children's literature.

Stevenson's popularity is based primarily on the exciting subject matter of his adventure novels and stories of the fantastic. Treasure Island (1883), a swiftly paced story of a search for buried gold, portrays good, in the form of the boy Jim and his friends, against evil, as personified by the pirate Pew and the one-legged Long John Silver. In the horror story The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), the extremes of good and evil mushroom startlingly in one character when the physician Henry Jekyll discovers a drug that changes him, first at will and later involuntarily, into the monster Hyde. The action in Kidnapped (1886) is triggered by a stolen inheritance, that of young David Balfour, who subsequently becomes party to the perilous escapades of the proud Highlander outlaw Alan Breck.

I purchased this to supplement our homeschooling education. We have been reading Stevenson's A Child's Book of Verses. It is not well geared toward the younger child. I found the occasional subjective comment obnoxious; I would have preferred it be much more objective and factual. Nevertheless, as a novice on Stevenson it was informative.

I purchased this to share with my students at the end of their summer assignment reading of Jekyll and Hyde. While this dvd is accurate, it is incredibly dry and quite boring. The narration is done by someone who sounds bored with it all himself. It is not done to the standard of interest that an A&E Biography will have.
