An affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads "Some Pig," convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E.B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things.
From Publishers Weekly
E.B. White's enduring classic celebrates in style with the release of the Charlotte's Web 5oth Anniversary Retrospective Edition. The handsome volume sports a clothbound cover framing original jacket art; inside, Rosemary Wells adds country color to Garth Williams's original b&w illustrations. An afterword by Peter F. Neumeyer illuminates White's life and work, including photographs of the author on his farm in Maine as well as pages from the seminal manuscript.

Top Customer Reviews
The story teaches several really great lessons: 1. Caring more about others than yourself 2. That sometimes the most unlikely people (spiders in this case) can become friends and come through for you to teach you the real meaning of friendship and 3. Death happens to everyone. This book is such a classic and a fantastic read!
Highly recommend this set!
This is such a delightful read. I do believe it is in most school curriculum. If your child is reading it for school, read it with them. Even if you have read it years ago, you’ll realize that you have forgotten a lot of it.
I think the best part about this story is how friendship can stretch across the lines imposed by society and nature. Those who are different can work together and succeed.
If you haven’t read this book in a few years, I recommend you pick up a copy. Add it to your homeschool curriculum.
