that always seemed part and parcel to EB White s own work and were his constant guideposts to focusalways seemed part and parcel to EB White s own work and were his constant guideposts to focus not veer off topic to not use too many gratuitous superfluous words And therefore while Melissa Sweet does of course present EB White s entire life because her title Some Writer The Story of EB White indicates to me that her main focus will be or ather that it is supposed to be on EB White s development and work as an author thankfully she focuses very distinctly and deliberately on how EB White became a writer on his verbal development and yes also on his three children s books on Stuart Little Charlotte s Web and The Trumpet of the Swan which I absolutely do massively appreciate and cherish For far far too often I have Atala / René read biographies of famous authors in which their oeuvre and their attitudes towards writing and being an author are sometimes literally buried far beneath either avalanches of to and for me unimportant minutiae of details or even worse sensationalism andumour something that thankfully never once appears to be the case in Some Writer The Story of EB White giving first and foremost a portrait of EB White the author and which in my opinion and according to the book title is the way things definitely should be And combined with the detailed supplemental information expansive time lines endnotes and a very good select bibliography yes and certainly if I were to actually judge Some Writer The Story of EB White only and simply according to Melissa Sweet s presented narrative I would most definitely be considering four and perhaps even five stars However as much as I have both very much enjoyed and appreciated how Melissa Sweet has penned Some Writer The Story of EB White Melissa Sweet has penned Some Writer The Story of EB White I have generally mostly felt Widow of Dartmoor rather annoyed with and distracted by the included illustrations and visuals For me they have felt annoyingly disruptive and to the point that I was sometimes even takenight out of the narrative something I certainly have not appreciated especially since in my opinion NONE of the included visuals are actually Dark Calling really all that necessary for understanding and enjoying Some Writer The Story of EB White and which is also why instead of four stars this is but a three staread for me a very highly Arabella Millers Tiny Caterpillar recommended three stars to be sure but I cannoteally consider four stars for a book where the illustrations have mostly felt majorly distracting and even u This book is a non fiction biography of EB White s life for young Prinzipien Der Gemeinschaftlichen Kosten- Und Schadenstragung Im Seerecht Und Au�ergew�hnliche Formen Der Haverei Im 18.
