Nobody knew better than Walter de la Mare how to make rhymes for children. Indeed he succeeded so well it is hard to tell where the difference lies between rhymes for the child and poems for the adult. Peacock Pie first appeared in 1913 and in 1969 a revised edition, Illustrated by Edward Ardizzone, included all the changes de la Mare had made in his final versions of the rhymes that had first appeared in 1924. This Seventy-fifth anniversary edition contains the complete and revised text and with its exquisitely subtle colour illustrations and mysterious black and white vignettes by the young artist Louise Brier let brings the enchanting world of Walter de la Mare to a new generation.
Louise Brierley studied at the Royal College of Art and subsequently worked as a freelance illustrator in France and Germany. She has had several picture books published and her talent as an illustrator is widely recognized.
