1953 Newbery Honor Book 1970 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award This is the story of a kindhearted girl named Fern who saves the life of a very small and very lucky pig named Wilbur. It is also the story of Charlotte A. Cavatica, the beautiful, resourceful gray spider who lives with Wilbur in the barn and who becomes his best friend. Surrounded by his barnyard pals and cheered by Ferns visits, Wilbur enjoys each new dayuntil the old sheep tells him what farmers do to pigs at Christmas. Suddenly Wilbur is terribly afraid, but faithful Charlotte promises to spin a clever plan to save her humble friend. And with the help of Templeton the rat, she does just that. As moving and eloquent now as when it was first written more than fifty years ago, Charlottes Web celebrates the sweetness of friendship, even when it is tinged by loss.

Review:

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.
