"From Breakfast on through all the day / At home among my friends I stay, / But every night I go abroad / Afar into the land of Nod." Much as we may associate Robert Louis Stevenson with novels like Treasure Island, readers 4 to 7 likely know him best as a poet. Depicting the narrator as a boy recovering from a broken leg, British artist Robert Hunter uses rich shades of blue, pink, and violet to create an enchanting, serene world of dreams where toys come to life and anything can happen.
