The Rocket Book is Peter Newell's second work that has been reprinted in less than two years.About the Author:
Peter Sheaf Hersey Newell (1862 –1924), born during the American Civil War on 5 March 1862 near Rice Corners, in McDonough County, Illinois. Peter was the last of four children of George Frederick Newell, a wagon-maker, and Louisa N. Newell. "I broke out," he later recalled, "the same time as the Civil War did, in a crossroads in the country in MacDonough County, Illinois." He lived in that area until 1883 when he moved to New York, where he enrolled at Art Students League. By the fall of 1883 his work was published in New York Graphic and Harper's Bazaar. Newell began his career painting portraits, using crayons as a medium, before turning to children's book. Besides his own books, Newell illustrated Mark Twain's Innocents Abroad and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
