E.B. White

E.B. White was one of my favorite authors when I was a kid, so when I was asked to write a biography about him I was thrilled to do it. I ended up admiring him even more as the project advanced.

This book is part of a series published by Rosen Books for seventh graders, but I like to think this is a good read for anyone curious about the author of such classics as Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little.
