This charming book depicts children at various stages of playing with, fighting for and eating the apple pie. Kate Greenaway (1846 to 1901) was a famed popular children's book illustrator, she studied at South Kensington and the Slade, later becoming an illustrator for Edmund Evans, as well as printers Walter Crane and Randolph Caldecott. Her method was to draw in watercolour and then transfer her drawings to woodblocks. Greenaway's illustrations were so successful that she exhibited them at the Royal Academy in 1877 and the Fine Arts Society in 1891.
