Robert Louis Stevenson - LIFE STORIES
 
 
5/1/1886     RLS, Kidnapped to Samoa
On this day in 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped began serialization in Young Folks magazine. It was an instant and huge hit; taken with his others from the previous three years (Treasure Island, A Child's Garden of Verses, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) it made Stevenson famous and bound for Samoa, where he would die within the decade at age forty-four.
12/3/1894     Stevenson, Belloc, Kids
On this day in 1894 Robert Louis Stevenson died, and on this day in 1896 Hilaire Belloc's A Bad Child's Book of Beasts (2nd edition) was published. Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses was one of his most popular books, and Belloc's Beasts sold out within days of publication; both books are part of the "Golden Age of Children's Literature," a half-century span which includes Carroll, Kipling, Barrie, Graham and others.
