Editorial Reviews

Karen Lowther
Some pig! These words that Charlotte spins into her web to describe Wilbur cause plenty of excitement, and ultimately, help save his life. First published in 1952, this heartwarming classic about likable pig and his loyal spider friend shows readers that true friendships last forever. This Newbery Honor book portrays the relationship of these two extraordinary creatures. It also depicts life and death, the passage of time, and the wonders of nature with sensitivity and humor.

Riverbank Review
E.B. White's fine reading provides new interest in a sublime story of life and death and friendship.
Publishers Weekly
E.B. White's enduring classic celebrates in style with the release of the Charlotte's Web 5oth Anniversary Retrospective Edition. The handsome volume sports a clothbound cover framing original jacket art; inside, Rosemary Wells adds country color to Garth Williams's original b&w illustrations. An afterword by Peter F. Neumeyer illuminates White's life and work, including photographs of the author on his farm in Maine as well as pages from the seminal manuscript. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Wilbur the pig, is desolate when he discovers that he is destined to be the farmer's Christmas dinner, Then his spider friend, Charlotte, decides to help him. It is a wonderful story filled with humor and examples of what it really means to be a friend. The book will not dissapoint, even if kids have seen the movie version. 1953 Newbery Honor Book.
Children's Literature
This is the Spanish translation of E.B. White's story about the friendship between a young pig named Wilbur and a spider named Charlotte. It starts with how eight-year old Fern Arable pleads with her father to save a pig on their farm. Her mother explains that Mr. Arable needs to kill the pig because it is the smallest and will never amount to anything. Fern names him Wilbur and raises him. She is his first friend. Later, when he is too big to stay with Fern, he is sent to live in the barn of her Uncle Homer. Wilbur makes friends there with some of the other animals. Charlotte shows her friendship when she finds out that Wilbur will be slaughtered now that he has grown large. Her plan to save him is to draw attention to his great qualities by forming words in her web, such as Some Pig. Seeing this, Uncle Homer decides instead to enter Wilbur in a contest at the county fair. Children of all ages enjoy listening to and reading this classic story of friendship. Since many are familiar with the plot, this Spanish version is a great addition to Spanish classes. Whether reading it on their own or having it read to them, students will gain vocabulary skills as they learn about characteristics of true friendship and life on a farm. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 8 to 12.

Eudora Welty
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. "At-at-at, at the risk of repeating myself," as the goose says, Charlotte's Web is an adorable book. books of the Century, New York times review, October 1952

Meet 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."

Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.
