"I fell in love with the sound of an early typewriter and have been stuck with it ever since."
Elwyn White loved words. As a child, he chased them through dictionary pages and crafted into poems for St. Nicholas magazine. When he was a young man, words led him to writing jobs at big city newspapers and The New Yorker. And when his own stories came calling, E. B. White spun his words into classics such as Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little—and readers have been chasing his words ever since.
In this stunning first-ever fully illustrated biography of the legendary author E. B. White, Sibert medalist and Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet uses White’s letters, photos, and manuscripts—as well as her original collaged art—to convey the true story of one of the most beloved authors of all time.
