In this compilation of poems by Walter De La Mare are 84 pieces, representing the entire Songs of Childhood and the Up and Down and Boys and Girls sections of Peacock Pie.

Presented in large type with plenty of space around the text for easy reading this collection also features the original illustrations by Estella Canziani. If reading over a term there are enough poems for one each day, with some left over for when the children beg for more.
