Para el tímido joven Peter Mark Roget, los libros eran los mejores compañeros, y no pasó mucho tiempo antes de que Peter empezara a escribir su propio libro. Pero no escribía historias, sino listas. Peter utilizaba su amor por las palabras para organizar sus ideas y encontrar exactamente la palabra adecuada para expresar lo que pensaba. Sus listas crecieron y crecieron hasta convertirse en uno de los libros de referencia más importantes de todos los tiempos. Este libro es un retrato atractivo y visualmente absorbente de Peter Mark Roget y la creación del tesauro. Lectores de todas las edades se maravillarán con la vida de Roget, retratada a través de un texto lírico y unas ilustraciones brillantemente detalladas.
