Summary
Maxwell King delivers the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, telling the story of this utterly unique and enduring American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories, and archival documents, he traces Rogers's personal, professional, and artistic life through decades of work, including a surprising decision to walk away from the show to make television for adults, only to return to the neighborhood with increasingly sophisticated episodes, written in collaboration with experts on childhood development
