Waterstones Says

An undisputed children’s classic, White’s effortlessly charming fable about a condemned pig and the clever spider determined to save him is written with exquisite pace, wit and gentle suspense.

A poignant, humorous story of a pig, a spider and a little girl.

Wilbur the pig's life has already been saved by Fern, but when he is sold to her uncle, he realises his life is in even more danger. Enter Charlotte A. Cavatica, a beautiful large grey spider. Charlotte is determined to keep Wilbur from the chopping block, and comes up with an ingenious way to do just that.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An unusual and witty story which provides a gentle introduction to questions of mortality, Charlotte's Web is a modern classic. - BookTrust

From grammar to the tenderness in which this story is delivered, E. B. White's writing is so perfect... And Garth William's muted illustrations are entirely without fault. Whether read aloud or solo, this is a book well deserving of it's 'classic' status. - The Children's Book Review

An extraordinary story, exquisitely written, with unforgettable passages of dialogue and description, that confronts the dilemma of our relationship with farm animals. Witty, and in places, desperately sad this is a book where animals talk yet remain who they are, themselves. A book to make you cry. - Michael Morpurgo, Lovereading4kids

“A book worth reading”

I bought this book as a birthday present for my friend's 6 year old granddaughter but it is suitable for older children too. A heartwarming feel good story, highly recommended.

“Quaint and charming, just as story telling should be”

I'm sure I read this as a kid but of course I had to read it again, and of course I loved it. What's not to love, there's talking farm animals, a spider that can write, a fun fair, a young girl that... More

“Spiders and Pigs.”

I loved this book as a child. I am so happy now that my daughter is reading it now and loving it too. It is a beautiful story about the power of friendship. Pigs and spiders, sigh. I hope that she does not cry too... More
