Ink on His Fingers

By Louise A. Vernon
Level 5

In this shorter book, we read about the story of Johann Gutenberg, who invented the printing press, through the eyes of a fictional character: twelve-year-old Hans Dunne, apprentice to Gutenberg. I found this to be delightful historical fiction on an important part of world history that both boys and girls will enjoy.

This book is a suggested read-aloud for the The Good and The Beautiful History Year 4 course.
