An illustrated picture book edition of de la Mare's poem about two children who have a nighttime adventure with fairies by the light of the full moon.
Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees...
One spring evening, the fairies gather in the woods. Two sleepy children join in the parade and set off to a wonderful party under the stars.
Illustrated by bright new talent, Carolina Rabei, this Walter de la Mare poem is brought to life with shimmery, ethereal illustrations, making it the perfect book for bedtime.
NOTE : Text first published as the poem "Silver", in Walter de la Mare's "Peacock Pie" poetry collection, in 1913.
