From the sales point of view, this is a good buy. A lot for the money in a complete collection of the perennially popular poems, with numerous colored pictures and quantities of blacks and whites. Critically speaking, the art work is somewhat sentimental and dated, but the Mother Goose in the same vein outsells all others, and this is aimed at the same level of market. (Kirkus Reviews)
The sixty-four poems in A Child's Garden of Verses are a masterly evocation of childhood from the author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped. They are full of delightful irony, wit and the fantasy worlds of childhood imagination, and introduce for the first time the Land of Nod. But they are also touched with a genuine and gentle pathos at times as they recall a world which seems so far away from us now. This edition, which includes Charles Robinson's charming illustrations and vignettes, is described as the definitive edition by The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature.
