About the Author

A legendary writer for decades at The New Yorker and the author of many books of essays, E. B. White also wrote the children's classics Stuart Little, Charlotte's Web, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He lived in New York City and Brooklin, Maine.


More About the Author

E.B. White, the author of twenty books of prose and poetry, was awarded the 1970 Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal for his children's books, Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web. This award is now given every three years "to an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have, over a period of years, make a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children." The year 1970 also marked the publication of Mr. White's third book for children, The Trumpet of the Swan, honored by The International Board on Books for Young People as an outstanding example of literature with international importance. In 1973, it received the Sequoyah Award (Oklahoma) and the William Allen White Award (Kansas), voted by the school children of those states as their "favorite book" of the year.

Born in Mount Vernon, New York, Mr. White attended public schools there. He was graduated from Cornell University in 1921, worked in New York for a year, then traveled about. After five or six years of trying many sorts of jobs, he joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. The connection proved a happy one and resulted in a steady output of satirical sketches, poems, essays, and editorials. His essays have also appeared in Harper's Magazine, and his books include One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E.B. White, The Essays of E.B. White and Poems and Sketches of E.B. White. In 1938 Mr. White moved to the country. On his farm in Maine he kept animals, and some of these creatures got into his stories and books. Mr. White said he found writing difficult and bad for one's disposition, but he kept at it. He began Stuart Little in the hope of amusing a six-year-old niece of his, but before he finished it, she had grown up.

For his total contribution to American letters, Mr. White was awarded the 1971 National Medal for Literature. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy named Mr. White as one of thirty-one Americans to receive the Presidential Medal for Freedom. Mr. White also received the National Institute of Arts and Letters' Gold Medal for Essays and Criticism, and in 1973 the members of the Institute elected him to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a society of fifty members. He also received honorary degrees from seven colleges and universities. Mr. White died on October 1, 1985.

Yo le recomiendo este libro a todos que quieren regresar a su infancia. Yo estoy muy encantada con este libro. La historia de Carlota es mejor. También intentar Los Reinos Y Los Elfos De Las Quimeras.

I love the faithful translation and the same great story, but my favorite aspect was the alteration made to Garth Williams' original illustrations so that Charlotte's web actually spells out her famous words in Spanish. The only reason the book did not get the full 5 stars is because two of the images were printed wrong (the one of Charlotte laying on her web is upside-down, while the picture of the fair is a mirror image of the original). Otherwise, the book was fantastic.

I haven't read Charlotte's web in English, and I chose it to practice reading in Spanish as one of the first books... after all that's how I got fluent in English.

it was great!

Beautiful, well-told story.

I bought the book (two of them) as gifts for kids in Peru. They arrived quickly in wonderful condition. The story looks good (I don't know Spanish that well so I can't read it) so I'm sure our sponsored kids will love them. Thanks.
