Publisher Description:

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poem now vibrantly illustrated as a read-aloud picture book.

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.

The poems in Robert Louis Stevenson's collection, A Child's Garden of Verses have been popular ever since the book's first appearance more than one hundred years ago. None more so than "My Shadow," a traditional favorite for reading aloud.

Illustrator Glenna Lang has created a visual narrative to accompany the poem as a young girl travels through a dream nightscape with her shadow companion. Beautifully true to the sense and spirit of Stevenson's work, the illustrations add their own grace and rich atmosphere. The striking art style will captivate and delight readers of all ages.

This edition of My Shadow is a wonderful way to enjoy an old favorite bedtime poem with the youngest child.
