    Robert Louis Stevenson
    Selected Novels
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894) was a major Scottish novelist, essayist and poet whose classic works of fiction, notable for their memorable characters, style and observations of the human condition, remain widely read and loved today. This selected collection presents his most famous two novels – ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ – in a single volume.

    A Child's Garden of Verses

    A Child's Garden of Verses
    First published in 1885, poet and storyteller Robert Louis Steven­son’s classic tribute to the lives of children has delighted readers for more than a century. From flying through the air on a swing to building an imaginary world out of blocks to being tucked into bed for a night of sweet dreams, A Child's Garden of Verses is a joyful celebration of imagination, wonder, and what it means to be a child. Lavishly illustrated by beloved artist Barbara McClintock, this new unabridged edition of these classic verses is sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of both young and old for years to come.

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
    And Other Tales of Terror
    Stevenson's famous exploration of humanity's basest capacity for evil, "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," has become synonymous with the idea of a split personality. More than a morality tale, this dark psychological fantasy is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution, criminality, and secret lives. Also in this volume are "The Body Snatcher," which charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice, and "Olalla," a tale of vampirism and "the beast within," with a beautiful woman at its center.  

    An Inland Voyage

    An Inland Voyage
    Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Japanese, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.
