Everyone knows the story of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little! The names are synonymous with childhood. But do you know the author of those wonderful tales? Do you know where he came from and if he did anything else? Well, this book can shed a lot of light on those answers. Some Writer!: The Story of E. B. White is a combination of graphic novel and biography on a man; weaving a tapestry of personal letters, photos and artwork that will make you proud to have this book on your shelf!
Written by Melissa Sweet, a journalist who's won the Sibert Medal and Caldecott Honors, Some Writer: The Story of E. B. White had me flowing easily through the pages. Filled with bold artwork, comments from White, himself and photos, you feel as though you're looking through a family photo album/comic book. It's a very personal and comfortable, but you find yourself laughing and pointing things out as though you're reading a children's book.
Elwyn's life, or En as he's referred to in the book, is written for middle graders. It's a pleasant book; not filled with regurgitated facts but as a series of life events. It's as though Sweet was there the entire time, jotting notes and pivotal moments. There's even a colorful sketching of the manual typewrite he used at the beginning of the book. I've never read anything like this!
Some Writer! will be available as of October 4th, 2016. If you enjoyed Charlotte's Web- you'd love to know exactly where it all began! Check it out while I check another book. 📚
