Item description for Charlotte's Web (paper-over-board) by E. B. White, Garth Williams & Kate DiCamillo...

Wilbur, the pig, is desolate when he discovers that he is destined to be the farmer's Christmas dinner until his spider friend, Charlotte, decides to help him.

Publishers Description

Sixty years ago, on October 15, 1952, E.B. White's Charlotte's Web was published. It's gone on to become one of the most beloved children's books of all time. To celebrate this milestone, the renowned Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo has written a heartfelt and poignant tribute to the book that is itself a beautiful translation of White's own view of the world--of the joy he took in the change of seasons, in farm life, in the miracles of life and death, and, in short, the glory of everything.

We are proud to include Kate DiCamillo's foreword in the 60th anniversary editions of this cherished classic.

Charlotte's Web is the story of a little girl named Fern who loved a little pig named Wilbur--and of Wilbur's dear friend Charlotte A. Cavatica, a beautiful large grey spider who lived with Wilbur in the barn.

With the help of Templeton, the rat who never did anything for anybody unless there was something in it for him, and by a wonderfully clever plan of her own, Charlotte saved the life of Wilbur, who by this time had grown up to quite a pig.

How all this comes about is Mr. White's story. It is a story of the magic of childhood on the farm. The thousands of children who loved Stuart Little, the heroic little city mouse, will be entranced with Charlotte the spider, Wilbur the pig, and Fern, the little girl who understood their language.

The forty-seven black-and-white drawings by Garth Williams have all the wonderful detail and warmhearted appeal that children love in his work. Incomparably matched to E.B. White's marvelous story, they speak to each new generation, softly and irresistibly.

Reviews - What do customers think about Charlotte's Web (paper-over-board)?

nice story  Apr 24, 2010
I haven't read the book, but my daughter loved it. I bought the book for her. I'm pretty sure it's more detailed than the animation movie, which would make it more interesting. It shows how to do what you can to save a friend you care about.
Still The Best  Jan 1, 2010
My 3rd grade teacher read this book to our class a very long time had a great character message then and it still does. I'm glad they made a movie (or two or three) of the book, but I fear it has kept some kids from reading the book and they just don't realize what they are missing! That is why I just gave my niece the book for Christmas. Can't wait to hear what she thinks.
A Classic!  Aug 13, 2009
As part of my campaign to get the little darlings to read something decent, I got a spanking new copy of Charlotte's Web and was pleased to discover that kids will read old books as long as they look new. There's a reason why this book is called a classic, and if you don't have a tear in your eye after you learn what happens to Wilbur and Charlotte at the end, well you're a scary person. Great illustrations by Garth Williams by the way!
Chilhood Favorite  Jul 14, 2009
This is one of the best books for children. I think every child should have it. I love giving it as a gift to new parents.
Good Story  Dec 8, 2008
Having a dual form of dyslexia I did not learn to read until later in life. Thus I never read children's books while a child. Maybe that is why I read so many still today. I read this as part of a children's literature course in university.

It is an interesting book, about friendship, commitment, compassion, change and death. As such it deals with a lot of the big questions of life in ways a child can grasp.

For me the most moving part was when Wilber confessed to Charlotte that he did not like the thought of her as a blood sucker, towards the end of her life. Only true friends can be that open and honest.

The book is a powerful tale of true friendship and how our close friends can transform not only us but those around us.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
