Balderdash! John Newberry and the Boisterous Birth of Children’s Books

Reviewed by:

Telling the story of John Newberry, and how he wrote and published children’s books, this is an intriguing look at the person and the books. His passion for books is obvious. The variety of typefacing and the “old fashioned” illustrations add interest to the reader. More information about John Newberry is available at the back along with books mentioned in the book. A good historical look at an important part of children literature.
