About Walter de La Mare

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was a leading poet of the Georgian period whose most famous works include volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921) as well as poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.

Carolina Rabei was born in 1989 in Moldova. She moved to Cambridge, England in September 2012 to complete an MA in illustration. Her first picture book, Snow, with words by Walter de la Mare, was published to huge critical acclaim. The Ride-by-Nights is the second de la Mare picture book that she has illustrated.
