Charlotte's Web

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

Reviewed by Adam H. (age 9)

This is a story about a pig and a spider. Charlotte is a spider and Wilbur is a pig. They become best friends. Mr.Zuckerman is going to kill Wilbur in the winter. The main characters are Wilbur, Fern, Charlotte, and Templeton. Charlotte writes things about Wilbur in her web. Mr.Zuckerman does not kill Wilbur because of it.

I did not like it very much because some parts made some people cry. I did not like it because it did not have many funny parts. I did not like it because it made me feel bored. It was not funny. I would have liked it if I read it before I watched the movie. I like to read a lot, and I have read better books, like the Harry Potter books.

I think other people should read it because it is a good story. It does not have many funny parts, though. I think fourth grade would be able to read it because it has hard vocabulary in some parts.
