3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade and up, Non-Fiction

Some Writer! The Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet
Recommended for: Grades 3 – 7

E.B. White gave readers the very best of what children’s books are meant to be. (Think Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little and Trumpet of the Swan.) In this well-researched biography, Melissa Sweet gives readers a peak into the amazing life of E.B. White. To document his youth in Mount Vernon N.Y, summers on the Belgrade Lakes in Maine, his work at the New Yorker, his writing of children’s books, and farming in Maine, Sweet uses White’s many letters, handwritten drafts, photos and her own collaged art. A Timeline and Selected Bibliography are included. Some Writer! has won a New York Times Bestseller, People Magazine Best Children’s Book, A Washington Post Best Book, A Publishers Weekly Best Book, and is a Boston Globe/Horn Book Nonfiction Award Honor recipient.
