“Some Writer!” by Melissa Sweet is ‘spectacular’, as children’s book illustrator Dayne Sislen points out in her excellent book review. I discovered the book in 2017, and immediately purchased my own copy. As an E.B. White fan and a faithful reader-aloud of “Charlotte’s Web” every year, I found the book to be fascinating. The illustrations are quite different and intriguing, with original handwritten manuscripts and photographs. And, the story is absolutely delightful. It’s a must read.
