Summary
This ... picture book biography chronicles the life of the first pioneer of children's books--John Newbery himself. While most children's books in the [eighteenth] century contained lessons and rules, John Newbery imagined them overflowing with entertaining stories, science, and games. He believed that every book should be made for the reader's enjoyment. Newbery--for whom the prestigious Newbery Medal is named--became a celebrated author and publisher, changing the world of children's books forever
