Product Description

From Amazon

An affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads "Some Pig," convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E.B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

E.B. White's enduring classic celebrates in style with the release of the Charlotte's Web 5oth Anniversary Retrospective Edition. The handsome volume sports a clothbound cover framing original jacket art; inside, Rosemary Wells adds country color to Garth Williams's original b&w illustrations. An afterword by Peter F. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Story of frienships and love May 7 2007
By David
Format:Paperback
Charlotte's Web is a wonderufl tale of a young girl, her precious pig Wilbur, and a wonderful spider. The book is a beautiful story of friendship, love, and loyalty. It is a tender story of a lovely young girl and a very smart spider who together instill self esteem and dignity in their friend Wilbur. It truly is a book of life, in that all of the animal characters mirror people in this world who face the challenge of living their lives each day. It reminds me very much of a great series of children's books titled "Why some cats are rascals". In that three-book series the heroic cats also live their lives like humans. Both titles belong to my Top Ten Read-Aloud list.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book about Friendship June 17 2004
Format:Hardcover
I must confess that having just read "Animal Farm" shortly before reading this book, I was a little hesitant about excepting this as a pure children's story without any hidden political agenda. I kept expecting the talking animals to rise up behind the pig and take over the farm. Rest assured however there was none of that, as E.B. White does a good job of keeping the story at a purely kids level.
Wilber is the runt in a litter of pigs, and Mr. Arable the farmer is going to take him out back and have him slaughtered since as he says, "He is small and weak and will never amount to anything." His young daughter Fern who is eight, hears this and requests that her father give the pig to her to raise instead. The father wishing to prove a point to her, allows this so long as she promises to do all the work to take care of it. To Mr. Arable's surprise Fern does an excellent job of raising Wilber and he turns out to be "Some Pig", proving that even though he was very small he still could amount to something.
As Wilber grows bigger the Arable's can no longer support feeding him, so Mr. Arable has Fern sell Wilber to her uncle Mr. Zuckerman who has a farm down the road. There she goes and visits Wilber every day. Being young I guess gives you the ability to sit and listen to the animals more intently than adults, and by doing so Fern is able to hear that the animals can actually talk and she understands them. (Being the father of two girls who are 7 and 5, I'd have to disagree somewhat with this logic as my girls never sit still, and certainly have a hard time listening at times, but for the sake of the story we'll just give them the benefit of the doubt.)
Anywise Wilber meets all the other animals in the barn who are very nice, but none of them are really his close friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book May 28 2004
By ree
Format:Paperback
Charlotte's Web was an okay book. The part that made me very sad was when the girl's parents made the pig go to the the uncle's house because they really liked the pig and they begged the parents not to let the pig go but the parents didn't want the pig to stay because it was getting too big to stay on the farm. The parents told them that if the pig was not that big that they would have let it stay but the whole problem was that it got too big right away. When the pig was at the uncle's house the pig made a friend with a spider and the spider really liked the pig and the spider made really nice webs on the pigs door.The uncle took the pig to a fair to sign him up for a contest to win the contest the pig took first place and got a prize. And when the pig got home he was trying to find his friend the spider to tell him the good news but when he found the spider the spider was about to die.Come to find out the spider was having some babies and had them in a little crate. So the spider had its babies and raised them in the little crate. The pig was very happy but he didn't know what was wrong with the spider when he came back from the compition. But than he found out the good news about the babies.Than she couldn't go back home with him he took the babies back to his home and the spider stood home and died slowly and before the pig knew the babie spiders hatched all of them left excepted for three and the pig cared for them as much as he cared for the spider and they lived happily ever after.
I did like the book . I would recommend somebody to read this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Children's Literature May 10 2004
Format:Paperback
Charlotte's Web is perhaps the best piece of children's literature that I have read to date. I won't rehash the plot here, as many reviewers have done that already (and most of us know it, anyway). Instead, I will say that Charlotte's Web has what most children's books lack now, and that is a true literary quality. Most of what is marketed to children is dumbed-down, non-thematic, twaddle. Charlotte's Web avoid's all of those pitfalls. Instead, the prose is lyrical in it's simplicity. It has strong themes that deal with death in the real world, and growing up and beyond childish things. None of the characters are 'bad', but rather it is fate that is fought, the fate of a pig destined for Christmas dinner.
For parents who are seeking something meaningful in their child's literature, and especially for parents who are looking to accustom their children to good, wholesome literature (instead of twaddle), Charlotte's Web will fit the bill perfectly. Homeschooling parents, and all who enjoy expanding their children's vocabularies, will also appreciate the many words that are used and defined throughout the story.
And, lest I forget the most important issue of a review, my five year old boy LOVED this book. He's still talking about it some time after we finished reading it. Parents concerned about the death of Charlotte should give some thought to whether or not their child is ready to have that included in the story. My five year old wasn't particularly disturbed by it. My feeling is that most wouldn't be, however, very sensitive children might do better to wait a year or two more.

"Charlotte's Web" is a classic but its foundation is animal life threatened. Many coo about famous titles for sentiment sake. Here is what I dislike and admire specifically. Read more
