This beloved book by E. B. White, author of Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan, is a classic of children’s literature that is “just about perfect.”
Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte’s web, high up in Zuckerman’s barn. Charlotte’s spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur’s life when he was born the runt of his litter.
E. B. White's Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, family, and adventure that will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come. It contains beautiful, classic illustrations by Garth Williams, the acclaimed illustrator of E. B. White's Stuart Little and Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series, among many other books.

Neumeyer illuminates White's life and work, including photographs of the author on his farm in Maine as well as pages from the seminal manuscript.

I was in grade school when I found this book in my grade school Library I’m now 42 years old and I still love this book I know it’s a kids book but I’m a kid at hart. T.j.
In 7th grade I used to read this book a lot and I liked it, but it was sad at the end when the pig lost his friend charlotte.
This is one of my favorite books. Even though I am only 10, I have read this book many times along with The war that saved my life, and The war I finally won. I would highly recommend it to girls like me! All these books just took my heart.
