This story is about a girl named Fern who gets a pig named Wilbur. She wants to keep it really badly, but her dad won't let her keep it because it is a runt. They share many adventures, but soon she has to let Wilbur go. Wilbur becomes very sad. A spider named Charlotte soon cheers him up. You will have to read the story to find out what happens to Fern, Wilbur and Charlotte.

My favorite part is when Fern gets the pig. She dresses Wilbur up like a baby and takes him around the farm in a baby buggy. That is probably how I would react too. Fern reminds me of myself because I love animals too. It also reminds me of when I found a dog and my mom wouldn't let me keep her. I know how Fern felt when she had to give Wilbur up.

I recommend this book because it's very interesting and exciting because of all the action in the story. It's written for people who love animals and like to read. If you live on a farm and are interested in animals this book would be a great book for you to read.
