Synopsis: ?SOME PIG,? Charlotte the spider?s praise for Wilbur, is just one fondly remembered snippet from E. B. White?s Charlotte?s Web. In Some Writer!, the two-time Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet mixes White?s personal letters, photos, and family ephemera with her own exquisite artwork to tell his story, from his birth in 1899 to his death in 1985. Budding young writers will be fascinated and inspired by the journalist, New Yorker contributor, and children?s book author who loved words his whole life. This authorized tribute is the first fully illustrated biography of E. B. White and includes an afterword by Martha White, E. B. White's granddaughter.
About the Author: Melissa Sweet is the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of many fine children?s books including Balloons Over Broadway, a Sibert winner, and The Right Word and A River of Words, both Caldecott Honors. Reviewers have described her unique mixed-media illustrations as ?exuberant,? ?outstanding,? and ?a creative delight.? Melissa lives on the beautiful coast of Maine, not far from E.B. White's famous barn and farm. In addition to writing and painting, she enjoys gardening, hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing.
