Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An extremely well-written and informative book that tells about Braille's life and the development of his alphabet system for the blind. Freedman's gift for making his subjects both accessible and intriguing comes through wonderfully in this book. Readers learn not only about Braille and his struggle to communicate thorough the written word once he lost his sight, but also how long it took for his revolutionary innovation to become universally accepted.... Finely detailed pencil drawings and diagrams appear throughout the readable narrative. An entertaining and fascinating look at a remarkable man.
