From the endpapers through the illustrated, easy to read out loud story, to the notes, this charming tale shows the progression of writing and publishing books particularly for the child reader. With endearing pictures and a variety of historical type faces, the story of John Newbery, publisher and book seller extraorinaire is cemented in history for all time.

A great story about the man that the Newbery prize is named after! Love the illustrations!
