Summary, etc.:
"Today, most people remember E. B. White as the beloved children's book author who gave us Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, but did you know that most of his career was spent writing for famous magazines like The New Yorker? His lifelong dream to write a children's book about a mouse would take years to get published before it became the classic book we know and love today. A few years later, White would publish yet another children's book, inspired by a pig he had raised and a spider whose webs he loved to admire in his barn"-- Provided by publisher.
