Waiting on Wednesday: Some Writer! The Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Some Writer! The Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet. 176 p. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, October 4, 2016. 9780544319592.

Publisher 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. 

Oh! How I loved Charlotte's Web and The Trumpet of the Swan. I liked Stuart Little, though not near as much as the other two. I also adore Melissa Sweet's art and am really looking forward to reading this!
