The poems of Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses have survived because they speak to a child's dreams with unmatched lyrical grace. But, since not all of the poems are right for today's child, Hague has selected the enduring favorites and has illustrated them with a series of bright, bold new paintings.

The Land of Nod: And Other Poems for Children by Robert Louis Stevenson
Oct 02, Jon athan Nakapalau rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens-books , classics , poetry. I remember this from my childhood May 18, Miriam rated it liked it Shelves: poetry , picture. A very brief poem about sleep is extrapolated into a story about invalidism and interior experience. May 24, Peacegal rated it it was amazing. Absolutely fantastic. Gorgeous, gently retro illustrations show us a fantastic dreamworld in the colors of a setting sun, while a classic poem weaves throughout. Books such as this really show off what this medium can do.

I have such a soft spot for R. Stevenson's poems. My Shadow was one of my favorite books growing up. This book scratches such a similar itch: a single beautiful Stevenson poem accompanied by singularly beautiful illustrations. I don't have the same association with this poem, but I'm buying this book for my BFF's baby in the hopes that this book will be for him what My Shadow was for me. Mar 25, Paloma Calvillo rated it really liked it. The book The Land of Nod is about a young boy who every night dreams of this magical and mysterious land. The beautiful illustrations in this book make this dreamland really come to life for threaders to be able to get a look inside what the boy sees.
It is a great story of fantasy that all kids I think will enjoy and make them wonder what their own land of dreams looks like.
This book is a fantasy because it involves a different world that is unlike reality. The things that he sees and dreams s The book The Land of Nod is about a young boy who every night dreams of this magical and mysterious land. The things that he sees and dreams seem real, but they cannot exist in this world. This book takes the reader to a different land and for the reader to really understand what this land looks like the author develops the setting with his words. The whole book is basically focused around its setting so by doing this he offers the reader real insight.
The tone of the book is very light and hopeful. It gives the reader a sense of excitement and he does this so that the dreamland seems more appealing for the reader to become its own. The illustrators use of the whole pages turns most of the focus towards the illustrations.
Book of Nod
Everything is so big to make the reader believe that this land is so big and grand that the boy thinks it is. In one scene right composition zones were used to show the new land and the mystery that comes with it. View 1 comment. Feb 14, Nicola Mansfield rated it it was amazing. Beautifully illustrated picture book edition of a poem from "A Child's Garden of Verses". The poem is about wonderful dreams at night, but this book expounds upon that by presenting a boy sick in bed. A beautiful bedtime story book and truly impressive art of the fantasy dreamland.
Jan 23, Elise Vandersee rated it it was amazing. I won this book through the goodreads giveaways. I read it to my seven year old and she loved the book. She now reads it almost every night to herself. Thanks for the wonderful book! Sep 13, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens-books , read-in , reviewed. All by myself I have to go, With none to tell me what to do All alone beside the streams And up the mountain-sides of dreams.
The strangest things are there for me, Both things to eat and things to see, And many frightening sights abroad Till morning in the land of Nod. Try as I like to find the way, I never can get back by day, Nor can remember plain and clear The curious music that I hear. The art is simple yet whimsical, with a dream-like quality. Hunter uses quite a bit of blues and pinks, which is reminiscent of twilight, I guess, but doesn't always do the poem's psychedelic potential justice.

The palette just feels a little flat for my taste. Despite the ominous reference to "frightening sights," the art is very tame and totally suitable for children of all ages. I especially appreciated the landscape for "Both things to eat and things to see," which shows a pig happily blowing on a horned instrument in the dreamer's band, while the leader foists a giant raspberry in the air.
Pigs are friends, not food!
Or BAMF tuba prodigies. Either or. Dec 14, Kim rated it really liked it. The Land of Nod was provided to me as an advance copy by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. If you have ever read the poem "The Land of Nod" by Robert Louis Stevenson, you know that it is beautiful and imagination stirring all on its own. However, Robert Hunter has created illustrations that not only bring the poem to full-color life, they tell a whole other story.
