For shy young Peter Mark Roget, books were the best companions -- and it wasn’t long before Peter began writing his own book. But he didn’t write stories; he wrote lists. 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.

Readers of all ages will marvel at Roget’s life, depicted through lyrical text and brilliantly detailed illustrations. This elegant book celebrates the joy of learning and the power of words.

Melissa Sweet has illustrated nearly 100 children’s books from board books to picture books and nonfiction titles. Her collages and paintings have appeared in the New York Times and Martha Stewart Living, on Madison Park Greetings and Smilebox cards, and on a line of eeBoo toys. She received a Caldecott Honor Medal for a River of Words by Jen Bryant and two New York Times Best Illustrated citations.

With a gorgeous palette, sidebars of diagrams, archival photographs, newspaper clippings and more creative resources, Melissa Sweet explores the legacy of imaginative, creative, fun-loving, explorative human beings who imbued their work with playful sensibility, outstanding ideas, scientific research sometimes and, most of all, joie de vivre.
