'Dream Blocks' forms a collection of delightful children's poems, written by Aileen Cleveland Higgins. Some long, some short - some whimsical, educational, and even moral, the verses are sure to delight any children who come across them. They include: 'The Big Clock', 'A Rainy Day', 'The Sick Rose', 'A Prayer', 'Summer's Blessing', 'The Moon Path', and many others. The poems are also accompanied by the beautifully delicate illustrations of Jessie Willcox Smith. Jessie Willcox Smith (1863 - 1935) was one of the most prominent female illustrators in the United States during the Golden Age of American Illustration. She was also a prolific contributor to literary novels and magazines during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Most notable was her ongoing relationship with Good Housekeeping, including the long-running 'Mother Goose' series. Smith's style changed drastically through her life. In the beginning of her career she used dark lined borders to delineate brightly coloured objects, and in later works she masterfully softened lines and colours - until they almost disappeared. Presented alongside the text of 'Dream Blocks', her illustrations bring further joy to Aileen Cleveland Higgins's poetry. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of llustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
