Robert Louis Stevenson (1850—1894), novelist and poet, was born and bred in Edinburgh. He wrote poems, stories and novels for children and adults, in Scots and English, travelled all over the world, and was gifted with a vivid and lively imagination. He is one of the best-loved and interesting authors of all time. His best-known books are Treasure Island, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Kidnapped. He is known as RLS for short, and his life and work are celebrated every year on his birthday, 13 November: we call it RLS Day.

The Scots Language Co-ordinators have produced some resources on the writer’s work. For more ideas about how to celebrate this great Scottish and Scots writer visit the Blether: Scots Blether RSL resources
