Kate Greenaway's book 'Marigold Garden: Pictures And Rhymes' was originally published in 1885, it contains many nursery rhymes and tales together with her beautiful illustrations. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the Illustrator: Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) was one of the earliest contributors to children's literature and, along with her contemporaries Walter Crane and Randolph Caldecott, was amongst the most influential illustrators in the development of children's colour picture books. Her collaboration in 1876 with Edmund Evans who reproduced her paintings using hand-engraved wood blocks brought her much popularity. She has enchanted people, young and old, for over one hundred years with her watercolour illustrations of sweet, charming eighteenth century children with their quaint costumes and idyllic scenes. In recognition of her lifetime work, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals of Great Britain established an award in her name in 1955 and to receive the Kate Greenaway Medal today is considered the highest accolade a British illustrator can be given.

About the Author:
You little girl, You little boy, With wondering eyes, That kindly look, In honour of Two noble names I send the offering Of this book.
Kate Greenaway (1846 1901) British author and artist Kate Greenaway grew up in North London and spent summers in the Nottinghamshire countryside. These happy times from her childhood were the foundation of many of her stories. Her illustrations portraying the idyllic landscape as a playground for children dressed in sumptuous Regency clothing offered a romanticized escape from the realities of the ever-encroaching industrialized world. In her costume designs, she combined the influences of her mother, an accomplished seamstress, with those of her father, a master engraver. She studied art in London where she developed a close relationship with printer Edmund Evans (1826 1905). Together they produced more than 150 books. Greenaway s popular illustrations inspired lines of ceramics, jewelry, fabrics, wallpaper, and children s clothing.
