The text image atop this entry is a letter written by the writer E.B. White to Gene Deitch on 2/3/1971.
At that time, Deitch had been hired by a Sagittarius Pictures to produce a feature-length animated movie to be based on White's book, Charlotte’s Web.
It was very important to E.B. White (as you can see in this letter), that in any animated feature based on his book, Charolette's (a spider) voice should remain true to her very being. And so should the other voices in the story, including Wilbur (a pig) and Templeton (a rat).
Because of my love for Cam (the cardinal pictured below)...

...who I've been helping give voice to her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One (the hardcover variety can seen in the next image)...

... I can certainly relate to how vulnerable White must've felt when entrusting his beloved characters to others involved in any project related to his story. My heart goes out to him upon learning how much he endured while going through the this process.
I am very blessed that my book formatter, Chris Deatherage, (who also serves as an editor) truly understands voice and spirit, and he definitely removes his hat when he enters my rooftop garden where Cam spends much of her time and where her story is set.
Cam and I are awestruck upon having seen the fantastic work that Chris has done with formatting and editing volume two of our book series.
