"You can almost hear the skipping rope slapping the sidewalk”, wrote Margaret Laurence of Dennis Lee’s timeless poetry collection Alligator Pie.

One of the first illustrated books published about Canadian children and featuring Canadian place names, Alligator Pie established Dennis Lee’s reputation as Canada’s Father Goose and has sold more than half a million copies since its publication in 1974.

This amazing first edition, featuring Frank Newfeld’s instantly recognizable original illustrations and book design, includes childhood favourites such as Willoughby Wallaby Woo, to the Laundromat and Skyscraper. 

These are some of my favourite children’s book illustrations ever…
