Steven Kellogg’s detailed, whimsical illustrations that bring the legend of John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, to life in this fantastic book. The story of John Chapman, his apple orchards, and his love for both wildlife and his fellow settlers is warmly and vibrantly told, bringing in elements of the more mythical tales surrounding the life of this extraordinary man. Of all the picture books that have been made about Johnny Appleseed, Steven Kellogg’s beautiful rendition, both playful and moving, is without question one of the best.
