作者：E. B. WHITE
E. B. WHITE was born in Mount Vernon, New York, and graduated from Cornell University in 1921. He was awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 1970 for both CHARLOTTE’S WEB, a Newbery Honor Book, and STUART LITTLE, and was commended for making “a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.” He is also the author of THE TRUMPET OF THE SWAN. Mr. White, who also authored over seventeen books of prose and poetry, was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1973.
During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to one of his fans, he answered, “No, they are imaginary tales ... but real life is only one kind of life—there is also the life of the imagination.”
GARTH WILLIAMS illustrated almost 100 books for children, including the beloved STUART LITTLE, also by E. B. White, BEDTIME FOR FRANCES by Russell Hoban, and the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
ROSEMARY WELLS, author and illustrator of almost eighty books, considers Garth Williams one of the true geniuses of twentieth-century book illustration and feels that had he had today’s technology available, he would have chosen to do the illustrations for CHARLOTTE’S WEB in full color. Applying a very simple palette befitting the story’s setting, Ms. Wells hopes her results would have pleased Garth Williams.
