Description
 
Here is one of the most beloved poems of childhood-Robert Browning's "The Pied Piper of Hamelin"-illustrated by Kate Greenaway, perhaps 19th-century England's most popular illustrator of children's books. The poem, of course, tells the story of a strange piper who promises to rid the town of Hamelin of its hordes of rats. In return, the Mayor and the Council promise him a fee of 1,000 guilders. The piper carries out his part of the bargain, but when the town tries to cheat him out of his fee, the piper exacts a terrible revenge. Now children and readers of all ages can enjoy this bittersweet tale in this inexpensive edition featuring the complete poem and 36 full-color plates. Miss Greenaway's delicate, ethereal watercolors bring the story to life, effectively lightening the somewhat grim events that are the subject of the poem.
