LoveReading View on Summer Evening

The sandy cat by the Farmer's chair

Mews at his knee for dainty fare;

Old Rover in his moss-greened house

Mumbles a bone, and barks at a mouse.

This enchanting picture book celebrates the wonderful poetry of Walter de La Mare as illustrator Carolina Rabei brings his poem Summer Evening beautifully alive.  One of four books that form a seasonal set, Summer Evening will delightfully invoke the sights and sounds of summer, whatever the weather, for both you and your little one.

About Walter de la Mare

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent. In 1890, aged sixteen, he began work in the statistics department of the London office of Anglo-American Oil. In 1907 he published his first collection of poems under the pseudonym Walter Ramal, but he soon established a wide popular reputation in his own name as a leading poet of the Georgian period with volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921). He also wrote poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.
