The Lovereading4Kids comment
David Almond, September 2011 Guest Editor, on Charlotte's Web: "It’s the story of a girl, a pig and a spider. It takes place on a barn, a farm, and a country fair. It shows the gorgeousness of life, the imminence of death, the importance of love and friendship. It has one of fiction’s great opening sentences - “Where’s Papa going with that ax?” – and a drama that unfolds with elegance, pace and conviction. It’s beautiful, tough, deeply moving and it’ll be read for ever."
Chosen as the Puffin Modern Classic 1950 - 1959
Julia Eccleshare's Comment:
Magical, this timeless farmyard story tells of the power of friendship. When the runty little piglet is saved from an early death, he grows into a fine and handsome pig. And the farmer wants to kill him.
Can Charlotte, the spider who has grown to love him, save his life?

Charlotte's Web (Puffin Modern Classics) by E B White
This is the story of a little girl named Fern who loved a little pig named Wilbur — and of Wilbur's dear friend Charlotte A. Cavatica, a beautiful large grey spider who lived with Wilbur in the barn. With the help of Templeton, the rat who never did anything for anybody unless there was something in it for him, and by a wonderfully clever plan of their own, Charlotte saved the life of Wilbur, who by this time had grown up to be quite a pig.
