Some Writer! – Hot Book of the Week


Did you recognize the phrasing of the title, Some Writer! as coming from Charlotte’s Web? Melissa Sweet’s account of E.B. White’s life is this week’s Hot Book of the Week. Here’s the description from the Web Store.

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.
