Charlotte's Web

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

Reviewed by Linda G. (age 7)

This book is about a pig named Wilbur, who had a friendship with a girl named Fern. Wilbur was born a runt and Fern saved him from getting killed. Fern took care of Wilbur when he was just a baby, but when Wilbur got older he went away to live in a barn on a farm. In the barn, Wilbur meets a spider named Charlotte. Together they have lots of adventures.

My favorite character is Wilbur, the main character. My favorite part is when Wilbur met Charlotte because Wilbur has a friend now. The illustrations are nice. They help you understand the words. When I read the book, I get excited about what would happen next.

I recommend this book because it has a lot of chapters of a pig and a spider helping each other. It reminds me of my own life when I am helping my little sister or my twin.
