Elwyn Brooks White loved words. As a child, he chased them through dictionary pages and crafted them into poems. When he was a young man, words led him to writing jobs at big-city newspapers and The New Yorker. In this stunning first-ever fully illustrated biography of the legendary author E. B. White, 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. Color illustrations throughout. Hardcover. 162 pgs.
