I randomly learned today that Robert Louis Stevenson wrote A Child’s Garden of Verses. I find this somewhat baffling, to be honest. The same man who wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde also wrote “My Shadow” and the one about the tacks on the stairs.
Also, Robert Louis Stevenson was Scottish. Just in case you were wondering.
7/9 edit: My mother informs me that “The Swing” was one of my favourites. Rereading it, I can see why.
