A Apple Pie – Illustrated by Kate Greenaway
A – Apple Pie is a beautifully illustrated children’s book, produced by Kate Greenaway. It contains a series of colour illustrations (for every letter of the alphabet), amusingly telling the tale of one apple pie – and the lengths the townsfolk would go to, for just one taste. They fought for it, jumped for it, mourned for it, and more! It is sure to be a favourite of any young readers, and would make for an excellent artistic and educational text.
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. The artwork is presented in conjunction with the text – both aspects further refining and elucidating the other.
