A magical story of a young girl named Fern, her runt pig Wilbur, and Charlotte, the spider who saves his life. The prose is beautiful: White didn’t co-write The Elements of Style for nothing. The book’s farm setting will appeal to many kids, but it’s about so much more than that: love and loss, treachery and bravery, the seasons of life and the passing of time--and one of the best books on friendship ever written.
