Some Writer! is a near-perfect book for the kids that's both educational and fun. Melissa Sweet, the author, did a wonderful job of mixing Mr. E. B. White’s words, letters, and pictures with her own unique artwork to share his story with the young generation. The man was born back in 1899 and died in 1985. It's safe to say that the smart, budding young audience will be thrilled and fascinated by White's extraordinary life.
He was a stand-out journalist, a brilliant writer of books for kids, and, above all, a big fan of words. He spent his whole life writing, and that is exactly why he became one of the greatest ones out there. At the end of the day, there aren't too many entertaining illustrated biographies that are exciting enough for the children to love and educational at the same time.
But Some Writer! is pretty much a no-brainer if you want to introduce a "grown-up" book to your kids and still have an awesome time reading it with them. Melissa Sweet's tribute is full of light and inspiration. Plus, it's got numerous breath-taking illustrations, including those of the famous author and an engaging afterword by Martha White, the man's granddaughter. Some Writer! is a superb guide to the life of a legendary writer, and it's also a brilliant story.
If you happen to be a fan of White's words, you'll most definitely appreciate Sweet's lovely tribute. And even if you're hearing his name for the first time, this book will captivate you from the very first page. So, just grab your copy at the local bookstore (or online) and start enjoying it with your kids. A masterpiece like this is not to be missed!
