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.

'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

“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.
