Wheeler Illustrator Reviewer Laura Dekle Rating Excellent Level Primary, Intermediate Pages 24 Year 2013 Publisher ABDO Publishing Company ISBN 9781617835797 Book Review E.B. White This children?s biography is written about the timeline and highlights of E.B. White?s life and career. It starts with his childhood, including details about his family growing up, his journey in school and learning to read, how he entered the writing field, other jobs he pursued, and notable successes besides those for which he is typically known. E.B. White wasn?t originally a children?s author, and the book explains the circumstances when he wrote his three children?s novels. The impact of his writing (both for children and adults) is also mentioned. This biography is divided into brief chapters, one to two pages each. Pictures of E.B. White in different stages of his life are dispersed throughout the text, as well as captions for each picture. Words that are likely to be unknown to readers are bolded in the text and defined in the glossary. Some of these words are general vocabulary words, and some are specific to the writing/literature career. Included after the text as well is a list of websites that could offer more information and an index of covered topics.
