Staff Reviews


When a children’s picture book biography contains primary source materials (letters, photos, manuscript pages); when it has drawings, whimsical collages, and watercolor; and, most importantly, has a clear and nimble text, I get happy. What Melissa Sweet’s book conveys about E. B. White’s writing (through excerpts), and what she herself conveys through her own writing, is joy—the sense of how lucky we are to live this life. Some Writer! is just what a biography should be, leaving you both satisfied and curious. Ages 8 & up.
