This box set contains paperback editions of the Newbery Honor-winning Charlotte's Web, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal-winning Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan—three beloved, timeless classics by E. B. White, with black-and-white illustrations by Garth Williams and Fred Marcellino.

Charlotte's Web

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.

Stuart Little

Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans, he lives in New York City with his family. But when Stuart's best friend goes missing, he's determined to leave home and take an epic journey to find his friend.

The Trumpet of the Swan

Louis is a trumpeter swan, but unlike the rest of his family, he can't make a sound. And since he can't trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays no attention to him. But when his father steals him a real brass trumpet, Louis has to find out if it's the key to what he's wanted all along. E. B. White's classic book is a tender novel of overcoming the odds and learning to do things on your own terms.

Review:

Charlotte's Web. Stuart Little. The Trumpet of the Swan. What other books even approach these masterpieces of children's literature in humor, poignancy, and long-lasting influence? E.B. White's three award-winning classics have been brought together in a very welcome gift set for any young reader. The hardcover editions feature the original, oh-so-memorable pictures by Garth Williams for Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, and wonderful, all-new illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Fred Marcellino for The Trumpet of the Swan. White's ingenious blend of fantasy and the natural world has a timeless appeal. After reading Charlotte's Web, what child has not cried out to save a spider from a cruel, crushing heel: "Wait! That could be Charlotte!" Read them once or a hundred times--the memories will linger forever. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
