In THE STORY OF CHARLOTTE'S WEB, Michael Sims tells the charming story of E.B. White, the man who created Wilbur, Charlotte, Fern, and, of course, everyone's favorite self-proclaimed glutton Templeton.
Library Journal says, "Sims successfully argues that CHARLOTTE'S WEB unintentionally became a 'summary of what it felt like to be E.B. White.' [...] Scholars of children’s literature as well as fans—child and grown-up alike—of either White generally or Charlotte’s Web in particular will enjoy this biblio-biography."
And Kirkus Reviews says it's, "Packed with the same kind of sensory detail its subject reveled in, this account is an honorable addition to the literature of letters."
This is the type of biography that is so rich with detail and driven with purpose it reads like a novel.*
