Kate Greenaway's Book of Games contains a large collection of games and stories for children - to be appreciated by young and old alike. It contains such well-known and loved games as 'Blind Man's Buff', 'Hide-and-Seek', 'See-Saw', 'Oranges and Lemons', 'Hunt the Slipper', and 'Musical Chairs - King of the Castle'. A wonderful anthology, this 'Book of Games' is sure to delight both children and parents, with its fun amusements, and beautiful illustrations. Kate Greenaway (1846 - 1901), was a children's book illustrator and writer, and remains one of the most popular illustrators of all time. Edmund Evans produced her first book, Under the Window, in 1879, which was an instant best-seller and cemented her pre-eminent position. Her charming children in quaint costumes and idyllic scenes captured the imagination of the contemporary public - and continue to delight over a century after their initial publication. Presented alongside the text, her illustrations (first published in 1888) further refine and elucidate this carefully collated anthology. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
This charming volume brings back into print some of the finest illustrated children's books from the Arts and Crafts Movement: Kate Greenaway's much-loved alphabet book, A Apple Pie, along with a selection of her illustrated nursery rhymes. Greenaway's drawings conjure up a never-never land of rural simplicity and innocence-an escape from the squalor of Victorian cities-that is as delightful now as it was when these gems of children's literature first appeared in the 1880s.
