The Childhood Art of Famous Authors

Famous authors: they once were little kids who drew pictures for their parents, just like us. Recently, a few childhood drawings of E.E. Cummings were discovered and put on display by the Massachusetts Historical Society — and while it’s not clear whether they tell us anything about the future poet’s work, they’re certainly a fun window into the life of the artist as a young boy. After the jump, see a few more early artworks by some of your favorite authors — and be sure to add any others you find to the list in the comments.
