We built a ship upon the stairs,/ All made of the back-bedroom chairs,/ And filled it full of sofa pillows/ To go a-sailing on the billows. Written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1885, this charming book of poetry for children conjures up a carefree world of pretend soldiers, the lands of Counterpane and Nod, dreams of travel and eating fairy bread. This edition is illustrated by Barbara McClintock.
