Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- There are currently 14 editions of Stevenson's perennial classic in print, as well as single editions of The Moon (Harper, 1984) and Block City (Dutton, 1988) . Now here is another. The illustrations for this volume have been selected from the work of 20 illustrators published between 1896 (Charles Robinson) and 1940 (Ruth Mary Hallock). For those interested in the history of children's book illustration, the work of E. Mars (1900) may be of interest, as well as that of H. Willebeek Le Mair, with its sophisticated use of color. The strongest work is that of Jessie Willcox Smith, but Smith admirers may have the edition of the verses that she has illustrated entirely (Scribners, 1905). With the exception of the illustrators mentioned and Willy Pogany's charming end papers, the art work is second rate, although possibly of sentimental interest to adults. For children, the editions illustrated by Blegvad, Foreman, Smith, Tudor, and Wildsmith are better choices. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY

Review

--BOOKLIST, Starred Review, November 1, 1989
The poems are oh-so familiar and the artwork extends the nostalgia; yet Cooper Edens' conception, choice of illustration, and the juxtaposition of the art and text on the page bring a new appreciation of both words and pictures. More than 100 selections from illustrators from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries grace the crisp white pages in a pleasing mix of full color and black and white. The works, mostly taken from previously illustrated editions of Stevenson's famous collection, are by such well-known artists as Jessie Wilcox Smith, Charles Robinson, H. Willebeek Le Mair, Margaret Tarrant, and Willy Pogany. Sources and a short biography of the poet are appended. M. Dibdin Spooner's painting for "The Land of Counterpane" appears on the dust jacket, making an enticing invitation to enter Stevenson's rich and magical world; those who respond will cherish the experience.

--REDBOOK, 10 Best New Picturebooks for Kids
First published in 1885, Stevenson's classic collection has never gone out of print. This glorious new edition includes 64 evocative poems, over 100 timeless illustrations and a one-page biography of the well-loved author. It is a stunning treasury that belongs in every child's library.

--AMERICAN BOOKSELLER, Pick of the Lists, August 1989
Drawing generously from many of the great illustrated editions of the past hundred years, this lavish version of the classic treasury makes an excellent gift.
