Balderdash!: John Newbery and the Boisterous Birth of Children’s Books
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The rollicking picture book biography about a pioneer in children's books: John Newbery himself. While most children's books in the 18th century contained lessons and rules, John Newbery imagined them overflowing with entertaining stories, science, and games. Nancy Carpenter's (hilarious) illustrations make reading this book pure delight.
