A boisterous account of a singular contributor to America's linguistic legacy." starred, Publishers Weekly
"A wonderfully clever and humorous depiction of Noah Webster. starred, School Library Journal
Noah Webster, famous for writing the first dictionary of the English language as spoken in the United States, was known in his day for his bold ideas and strong opinions about, well, everything. Spelling, politics, laws, you name it he had something to say about it. He even commented on his own opinions! With a red pencil in hand, Noah often marked up work that he had already published. So who edited this book? It certainly looks like the ghost of the great American author and patriot picked up a pencil once again to comment on his own biography!

Review:

"[A] wonderfully clever and humorous depiction of Noah Webster. . . . Students of all ages (and adults!) will appreciate this brief, comical, fact-filled sketch of an American icon." --starred, School Library Journal

"[A] Monty Pythonesque tale. . . . The digitally processed mixed-media illustrations use collage and speech bubbles for an appealing, contemporary feel." --Booklist

"[Maurer] has crafted a text that reflects Webster's feisty personality and provides enough history to establish sufficient context for Webster's work. . . . An attractive volume demonstrating that even words themselves have a story." --Kirkus Reviews
