Some Writer!: the Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet
This juvenile biographical book of the life of E.B. White is written in an engaging scrapbook style. The photos, drawings and quotes complement the narrative. A note from his granddaughter, Martha White, confirms that the author accurately portrays his spirit. He was very independent, enjoying a simple life and refusing to let his writing success define him.
I was unaware of White's works outside of his children's books including his long-time relationship with The New Yorker magazine. I look forward to reading his many essays and poems.
The interesting, nostalgic style of the book makes it worth skimming through even if you decide not to read it entirely.
