I have been anticipating this book since hearing Melissa talk about it last February at the Children's Literature Conference at Western Washington University. "Some Writer" exceeded the expectations Melissa created! I read this bio cover to cover and was truly immersed in Melissa's writing and the minute details in her art. This feels like a scrapbook full of pieces of E.B. White's life. It was impressive that White's granddaughter not only shared material with Sweet but wrote an afterword for this book. I am still going back and lingering over pages, savoring the beautiful design of this book. I love E.B. White's book and so appreciate this stunning bio that will make a great non-fiction read-aloud!
