First published in 1885, A Child’s Garden of Verses has delighted generations of children and adults. The complete collection of these favourite and familiar poems is here, from Bed in Summer, The Swing and The Land of Counterpane to The Lamplighter, My Shadow and Escape at Bedtime. They capture the imaginative, transformative aspects of childhood with a unique freshness and innocence.

As Alexander McCall Smith says in his inspirational foreword, “Childhood is very brief. While the garden is still there, it should perhaps be visited.” This beautiful edition, with delicate and atmospheric watercolours by Kate Greenaway Medallist, Michael Foreman, will enchant a whole new generation of readers.
