A marvelous picture book biography about shy Peter Mark Roget, who loved words and loved order ... and changed the world with his own combination of the two! Excellent – especially for older kids.


Peter took his love for words and turned it to organizing ideas and finding exactly the right word to express just what he thought. His lists grew and grew, eventually turning into one of the most important reference books of all time.
