    Charlottes’ Web is about a girl named Fern who grows up on a farm. When her father is about to kill a runty pig, she saves him, saying that she will raise him and then names him “Wilbur”. Soon, Fern and Wilbur come to love each other very much, however, trouble is brewing. Wilbur soon grows too big and is then sent to live on a nearby farm. Wilbur is soon introduced to all of the other farm animals except for one, Charlotte, a spider. That night, while he is crying about losing Fern, Charlotte comforts him, and he calls her his friend. Soon comes the winter and Wilbur learns that he is going to be eaten on Christmas. Charlotte begins to try to save her newfound friend.

    I really enjoyed this book; it’s truly a classic. This author is amazing at descriptions; you always know exactly what Wilbur’s surroundings look like. I would give this book a 4/5.

    I really like this book. It was just long enough to not get bored. I would personally rate it 5/5 stars! The way E.B. White writes the book is just amazingly descriptive. You almost didn’t need to look at the pictures to get the visual! I thought the best description was at the fair. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a short, fun, and easy book.

    If interested in this book, I would also recommend: Babe the Gallant Pig, Rabbit Hill, Mouse and the Motorcycle, and Abel’s Island.

She names the pig Wilber and they become really good friends and do everything together. One day Wilber gets sent to Fern’s uncle’s farm to live there. Wilber ends up making a lot of friends but most importantly he meets Charlotte, she’s a spider who lives in his cell in the barn and they become really good friends as well. They have many exciting adventures together.

    This book is my favorite classic. I really enjoyed reading it, because it reminds me of when I was a little girl. I would rate this book 5 starts out of 5. The descriptions E.B. White does in this book make things very visual. The best ones he did was when he was describing everything at the fair. This book is a feel good type of book I recommend to everyone.

    I would recommend the BFG, James and the Giant Peach and Where the Red Fern Grows if you are interested in this type of book.
