Wilbur didn't want food, he wanted love. He wanted a friend –
someone who would play with him.
One spring morning a little girl called Fern rescues a runt and names him Wilbur. But then Wilbur is sent to live on a farm where he meets Charlotte, a beautiful large grey spider. They become best friends and, when Wilbur is faced with a dreadful fate, Charlotte must find a very clever way to save him.
About The Author
E. B. White was born in New York in 1899 and died in 1985. He kept animals on his farm in Maine and some of these creatures crept into his books, such as STUART LITTLE which was recently made into a blockbusting film. He received many awards including the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 1970, an award given every five years to authors who have 'made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children'.
With such classics as Stuart Little and Trumpet of the Swan, E. B. White proved that books for young readers could be as elegant, graceful, and nuanced as the essays he wrote for adults in The New Yorker, where he was one of the magazine s most distinctive and distinguished voices.

Comments about Charlotte's Web:
I loved this story as a child and was so excited when my 7 year old daughter came home and said they were reading E.B. White at school. We are reading a chapter together every night.
