A selection of Robert Louis Stevenson's finest work, including Treasure Island, 'The Suicide Club', The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and 'Markheim'.
Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of 66 poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination. Tasha Tudor's watercolor paintings evoke a simpler time in the past, and celebrate two of the things she loves most -- children and nature.
Taken from The Old Testament, the story revolves around Judith, a daring and beautiful widow, who is upset with her Jewish countrymen for not trusting God to deliver them from their foreign conquerors. She goes with her loyal maid to the camp of the enemy general, Holofernes, to whom she slowly ingratiates herself, promising him information on the Israelites. Gaining his trust, she is allowed access to his tent one night as he lies in a drunken stupor.
