About the Author
E. B. White, the author of such beloved classics as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, was born in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and, five or six years later, joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. He died on October 1, 1985, and was survived by his son and three grandchildren.
Mr. White's essays have appeared in Harper's magazine, and some of his other books are: One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E. B. White, Essays of E. B. White, and Poems and Sketches of E. B. White. He won countless awards, including the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which commended him for making a "substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children."
During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to be sent to his fans, he answered, "No, they are imaginary tales . . . But real life is only one kind of life—there is also the life of the imagination."
Maggie Kneen, the illustrator of Daddy's Little Boy by Billy Collins, Daddy's Little Girl by Bobby Burke, Babe by Dick King-Smith, and other picture books, lives in Cheshire, England.

- It ends when Wilbur is sold (lots more story to tell...)
- The drawings are different than the 1973 movie (still great)
I would increase my rating if it was clearer that this picture book contains about 1/3 of the entire story. I hope the author releases more additions that continue to cover the original book in its entirety.
