Amazon.com Review

Charlotte's Web. Stuart Little. The Trumpet of the Swan. What other books even approach these masterpieces of children's literature in humor, poignancy, and long-lasting influence? E.B. White's three award-winning classics have been brought together in a very welcome gift set for any young reader. The hardcover editions feature the original, oh-so-memorable pictures by Garth Williams for Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, and wonderful, all-new illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Fred Marcellino for The Trumpet of the Swan. White's ingenious blend of fantasy and the natural world has a timeless appeal. After reading Charlotte's Web, what child has not cried out to save a spider from a cruel, crushing heel: "Wait! That could be Charlotte!" Read them once or a hundred times--the memories will linger forever. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
My 6-year-old daughter and I throughly enjoyed all three stories.
Most Creative Story: The "Trumpet Swan" because of the way White takes the reader to different places and settings through the eyes of Louis the Swan.
Most Profound Story: "Charlotte's web". Of all my years of education it took this simple book to grasp a real appreciation of nature and the web of life.
Funniest Story: "Stuart Little". Most of us have on more than one occassion laughed ourselves to tears upon reading, hearing, or watching some funny event. My last time occurred when reading about the trials and tribulations that Stuart had to endure in order to wash himslef in the morning (Picturing him swinging a mallot to turn on the hot water was for me hysterically funny!). I found the Stuart Little of this book much more cute and amusing than the one in a recent movie with the same title.

These 2 books are not just fun and adventure but inlaid with more in-depth meaning. Friendship, trust and encouragement between 2 different species Charlotte (the spider) and Wilbur (the pig) - applies to people as well, whether you are of different races or colour
Take another example Stuart Little, despite the fact that a cat traditionally catches mouse, Snowbell (the cat) dismisses this tradition to save and befriend Stuart Little (the mouse). What more, human parents chose to adopt a mouse instead of their own human being to display selfless love.
These 2 titles make good moral reading for children.
They have accompanied me through childhood to adulthood and has thought me to be sensitive to people's feelings.

So many kids books are written so poorly, and with such poor structure and weak story lines, they make it hard to convey any sense of flow or emotion to your kids. To pick up these classics reminds one of the golden age when authors wrote stories with meaning and impact. Glowing descriptions, scene setting introductions to chapters, polite conversations recorded in proper English, all this is the heritage of EB White and these books. Highly, highly recommended - your kids will not want to stop reading and listening...makes bedtime each night a joy because they can't wait to find out what happens next.

After Sam Beaver stumbles apon a lake and Louis the swan is hatched, the adventure begins. Louis was born without a voice but that didn't stop him from going to school, getting a trumpet, saving a life, recieving $4,000.00 from playing his trumpet, and getting a slate. On his adventure Louis get's a mate, goes to the Ritz, and just makes it through his swan life.
I thought this was a facinating book with fun facts and rich language. It is completely enjoyable and will make you laugh and cry. Out of all of E.B White's books I read, this has to be #1.
I recomend this book to anyone who likes romance and animals. 8-12 year olds will expecially love this book with it's humor and many other qualities.

The best part of this book was when the sail boat race took place. I liked that part because the policeman fell in the water. Also, I liked being able to see the world through a mouse's eyes. Margalo is a great character in the book because she is smart and she helped Stuart. I am looking forward to reading another book by E.B. White, such as Charlotte's Web and the Trumpet of the Swan.

Stuart Little is a mouse that is about 2 inches tall. Stuart is part of the family of the Fredrick.C.Littles. He has a friendly but shy manner. He's very smart for a mouse but his size gives him trouble sometimes. His life is an adventure when he sets out on the age of seven,he trys to find his dearest friend,Margalo, a friendly little bird who stayed with the Littles in their Boston Fern.
Stuart Little is an interesting book. I enjoyed reading it beacause it was funny and it had interesting vocabulary. There were some sad parts in the book. This Book got me absorbed into it.
I would recommend this book for children of the ages of 8 to 12. If you like fantasy stories then you would love this book. If you are a person who likes certain kinds of fantasy books then you should probably enjoy Stuart Little because you may get absorbed into the book. Also if you like fantasy books that have animals in it that talk and you like the Author E.B.White then you'll like this book.

Cannot say how much I love this box set. I read stories to adults so that they will know what it feels like to be read to and then read to their children. When I brought the set to class these grown women got so excited at the prospect of reading Charlotte's Web. None of them had ever heard of The Trumpet of the Swan so of course we read that first. They were enthralled, Louis has a whole new set of fans. It's great to sell these three books together because some people have heard of some of the books but not all of them. Fantastic buy they got here in no time I'm so happy with it. Yay for Prime!

They're simply required books for any kid's library. Ultimately parents have only two real responsibilities to their kids to have them grow up to be successful humans: keep them as healthy as is reasonable, and teach them how to read. Everything else is a bonus.

These books are great ones to read to them, then great ones for them to read themselves.
