Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Something to celebrate this spring: the 50th anniversary of this Caldecott Honor Book and the 100th anniversary of its creator, Leo Lionni. Long unavailable in hardcover from its original publisher, Inch by Inch tells the tale of a tiny green inchworm who can measure anything, from a robins tail to a toucans beak. But when a nightingale demands that the inchworm measure its song, the clever worm calls on its skill to creatively save his life. Knopf is proud to add this classic to the many beloved picture books by Leo Lionni.

“A handsome and appropriate book to give pleasure to little children and their elders.”The Horn Book Fanfare

Synopsis:

A small green inchworm is proud of his skill at measuring anything—a robin’s tail, a flamingo’s neck, a toucan’s beak. Then one day a nightingale threatens to eat him if he cannot measure his song. Children will enjoy the clever inchworm’s solution and delight in finding the tiny hero on every page.

Every inch the classic, this was the first of Lionni’s books to win the Caldecott Honor.

About the Author

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators’ Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as “a master of the simple fable” by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89..
