Read full description of the books A Apple Pie:
It was OK, but just OK.
As an alphabet book it was interesting because it uses a verb for each letter - unlike just about every other alphabet book that uses nouns. But as an alphabet book you might need to do some significant explaining about the history and development of the English language, as it is missing an I. I also thought the treatment of the bain of the alphabet-book creator's life, those pesky late-in-the-alphabet letters was a cop out!
I liked how each of the letters were anthropomorphised in the illustrations - but there really aren't any human characteristics of a letter to make this more than a curiosity.
At times it appears that the pie has been included as an after-thought, floating in the margins of the illustration.
The illustrations themselves are beautifully detailed - it is interesting to consider what Kate Greenaway would be producing today with the cultural changes - and the technological changes that greatly increase the range of illustrative methods that can be used in mass-produced books.
Read information about the authorKate Greenaway (Catherine Greenaway) (1846-1901) was a children's book illustrator and writer. Her first book, Under the Window (1879), a collection of simple, perfectly idyllic verses concerning children who endlessly gathered posies, untouched by the Industrial Revolution, was a best-seller. The Kate Greenaway Medal, established in her honour in 1955, is awarded annually by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in the UK to an illustrator of children's books. New techniques of photolithography enabled her delicate watercolors to be reproduced. Through the 1880s and 90s, in popularity her only rivals in the field of children's book illustration were Walter Crane and Randolph Caldecott, himself also the eponym of a highly-regarded prize medal. Amongst her other works are: A Day in a Child's Life (1881), Mother Goose; or, The Old Nursery Rhymes (1881), Little Ann (with Ann Taylor & Jane Taylor) (1883), Marigold Garden (1885), A Apple Pie (1886), Pied Piper of Hamelin (1888) and Kate Greenaway's Book of Games (1889).
