Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-- Faced with a dearth of known facts about Gutenberg, Burch uses an evocation of the time, place, and society in which his subject lived, together with a process of deduction, to fill in some of the details of the printer's life. The result is an interesting and credible biography of the feisty, determined, and oft-beset inventor, told with a minimum of fictionalization. Aldrich's linoleum-block cover design and illustrations are striking, appropriate, and enhance the text. Unfortunately, the only reproduction of the Bible itself is a very small photo on the back jacket flap. Caselli's A German Printer (Peter Bedrick, 1987) describes in detail the printing craft in the late 1400s and is a good follow-up choice. --Tatiana Castleton, Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library, CA

Format: Paperback
I'm not sure how I found this book, but I used it as part of a lesson in conjunction a book study of "Castle in the Attic". The teacher I was working with had the school library order 10 copies for future use. This is not going to be a book kids are going to want to pick up, but they will enjoy it once they do. History is so often presented so dry and boring, this book shows children that people making history are ordinary people with their own problems. I recommend this book for use with how the Renaissance and Reformation influenced education, art, religion, and government in Europe.

We bought this book to enhance our daughters home schooling science class. It was a good read and it helped her to understand Gutenberg and how the printing press changed our lives going forward. The book was received very quickly and in great condition.

Format: Hardcover
The text is fine for young readers but the illustrations tend to be a little bit wonky, with good details but some of the facial expressions and shadowing can be a bit off. Otherwise a fine introduction to the work of Gutenberg and the history of the printing press.
