Florence-Anderson

My Short Story Book. Florence Susan Harrison (1877-1955). Front cover illustrated by Anne Anderson. Blackie & Son Ltd. (1930).

Harrison’s first published illustrations appeared in Rhymes and Reasons (Blackie 1905) and the popularity of that book quickly led to a further commission entitled The Rhyme of a Run. Both of these books were aimed at the expanding children’s market of the time. The Atheneum praised the “charming imagination in both verse and pictures."
