Robert Louis Stevenson. In the Scottish canon to be placed alongside Burns is high praise indeed but it's a rightful place for one of Scotland's finest novelists and here, poets.

Born in 1850 he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, The States, Samoa and the South Seas.

Of course he is widely feted for his classics Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, Treasure Island and poetry volumes such as A Child's Garden Of Verses.

    " It was okay, but I would have rathered it if there weren't as many nonsense poems...I mean, imagination is good in a child, but almost every single poem was completely fantasy. And reading them as an adult is not very enjoyable. lol "

    " I loved this book in my childhood, & I still love it now; 'Bed in Summer' & 'The Land of Counterpane' are, for me, particularly evokative "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayni | 2/17/2011

    " I have a copy of this book & I love it. I don't really know when I read it, but it would have to have been sometime in the 1960s. I probably wouldn't have given this a 5 now, but I still enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/15/2011

    " I decided to introduce poetry to my kids with my favorite book of poems. They liked my favorite, "Bed in Summer," but decided their favorite (of those we've read so far) is "Looking Forward." It gave us all a good laugh. "
