Sister of Anne Parrish 189804, cousin of Maxfield Parrish 21111 per Wikipedia.

Wikipedia implies that Anne and Dillwyn Parrish collaborated as writer and illustrator. That is stated clearly in both biographies for the first of three collaborations, Knee-High to a Grasshopper (Macmillan, 1923) and suggested by silence concerning Lustres (1924) and The Dream Coach (1924) T1999654.

They are not so credited in LC catalog records (nor some at WorldCat), nor on the title pages of HathiTrust Digital Library copies (Knee-High and Dream Coach).

All three may be collections of fairy tales in a sense.

Knee-High illustrations are not signed.

One scholarly article says "brother of Anne Parrish, with whom he co-wrote and illustrated a number of children's books", which is ambiguous re whether Dillwyn may be considered the sole illustrator.

Parrish wrote four novels, according to the article, which provides capsule summaries that show them to be non-genre.
