Charlotte's Web

Written by E.B. White • Illustrated by Garth Williams

Charlotte's Web is about a spider named Charlotte and a pig named Wilbur. Fern's dad tried to kill Wilbur. But Fern stopped her dad before he could kill him. When Wilbur and Charlotte went to the fair it was sad when they came home because Charlotte died. Then Wilbur tried to get Charlotte's egg sac but he couldn't get it. So he asked Templeton and Templeton got it. When summer came the egg sac hatched and all of the spiders flew away except three. They were named Joy, Arachne, and Nellie.

I really liked this book because it was about two friends who were nice to each other. My favorite part of the book was when Fern met Henry. I like it when she rode the Ferris Wheel with him. The best characters in the book were Charlotte and Wilbur. They helped each other a lot.

I recommend that people should read this book because it is a really good book. Older kids can read it, but younger kids should have it read to them.
