Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words woven into Charlotte’s web, high in the barn. Her spider web tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a little girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur’s life when he was born the runt of his litter. With an unforgettable cast of characters around the barn, the story has enchanted readers ever since it was first published in 1952. E. B. White’s Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, love, life, and death that will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come.
