Item description for Ink on His Fingers (Louise a. Vernon Historical Fiction Series, 12) by Louise Vernon...

Overview
Johann Gutenberg is working on printing the first Bible with type. Twelve-year old Hans Dunne is planning on being a scribe and copying the Bible by hand. But circumstances change and he finds himself working in Gutenberg's shop as an apprentice printer. Soon, Hans finds himself in the middle of a type-stealing mystery. Herr Fust, the village banker, wants Gutenberg's type and tries every possible way to get his hands on it. Gutenberg is deep in debt and has borrowed from everyone in town. Gutenberg is sure that he will be able to pay everyone back once the Bible is printed, but he is running out of time. Will Hans, and the other pressmen be able to keep Herr Fust from getting the type? Will they be able to finish the Bible so many people will be able to read and learn from it? Join Hans as he does his part to help and experiences God's faithfulness.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ink on His Fingers (Louise a. Vernon Historical Fiction Series, 12)?

delightful historical fiction for the entire family  May 13, 2004
I had trouble finding a book to use as a biography for our study of Gutenberg. I read a review of this book in a catalog and had to order it. Action, adventure, mystery are all interwoven with the biography of Gutenberg. My children begged me to read another chapter each night. You also get a feel for the time period. I am a fan of Louise Vernon and this book is among the best. We enjoyed it completely. Recommended
 
Gutenberg or Fantasy?  Apr 25, 2001
The known facts about Gutenberg need no dramatic license. The inventor of modern printing was a fascinating,wide-ranging genius in constant need of lawyers and lenders. His true story is one which deserves to be served without any fictional seasoning.

Unfortuately, Louise Vernon's INK ON HIS FINGERS mixes the author's imagination with history. One cannot tell which is which without prior knowledge of Gutenberg's story. Since no revealing insights or unique interpretations are provided by the author, the reader is left with a historical book in which historical fact is not clearly presented. A child reading it may well enjoy the entertainment of the narrative. However, the chance to gain information while being entertained is lost in the muddle.
