Some Writer!: The Story of E.B. White - Melissa Sweet

Staff Pick

“Some pig!” famously declared Charlotte the spider in E.B. White’s classic novel Charlotte’s Web. Now, acclaimed author/illustrator Melissa Sweet admiringly proclaims that White was Some Writer! (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99) in her picture-book biography of the beloved author. The cleverly executed scrapbook-like format allows room for photos, memorabilia, personal letters, and manuscripts, as well as numerous quotations that reveal White’s inner character. Tidbits such as how White added two eyes and three hairs to Garth Williams’s drawing of Charlotte to complete it, or how the story of Stuart Little came to White in a dream on a train, will make fans of all ages agree that this is some book! Ages 8 and up.
