This Newbery Honor Book by E. B. White, author of Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan, is a classic of children's literature that is "just about perfect." Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter. E. B. White's beloved book is a tender novel of friendship, love, life, and death that will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come. "What the book is about is friendship on earth, affection and protection, adventure and miracle, life and death, trust and treachery, pleasure and pain, and the passing of time. As a piece of work it is just about perfect, and just about magical in the way it is done."—Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review "High caprice on a farm, handled with wit and wisdom, that serves to put an imperfect world back into joint."—The New Yorker "A fantasy that has the beauty and delicacy of the web itself."—The Saturday Review

First disc was pretty badly scratched and wouldn't even play. Had to skip ahead to disc 2 and 3. From that point, loved the reading. Story is one of my favorites.

What an absolute delight to hear E.B. White read his wonderful classic. I love his east coast accent and the patient way he reads the book. His love for the characters, the farm, and the changing of the seasons shines through. The language is so simple and perfect - he never talked down to children. The conversations between Charlotte and Wilbur set such a good example of how friends should talk to one another and respect one another. And I love the growly voice of Templeton the Rat, who likes to eat food that has been "seasoned by the passage of time and the heat of the day." This book, and this recording, are a "tremendous thing."
