Overview

This box set contains paperback editions of three timeless classics by E. B. White: the Newbery Honor-winning Charlotte's Web, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal-winning Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. The first two are major motion pictures, and all are beloved by children.

Charlotte's Web

Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spider web 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 Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, family, and adventure.

Stuart Little

Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans, he lives in New York City with his family. But when Stuart's best friend goes missing, he's determined to leave home and take an epic journey to find his friend.

The Trumpet of the Swan

Louis is a trumpeter swan, but unlike the rest of his family, he can't make a sound. And since he can't trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays no attention to him. But when his father steals him a real brass trumpet, Louis has to find out if it's the key to what he's wanted all along. E. B. White's classic book is a tender novel of overcoming the odds and learning to do things on your own terms.

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."

In this review you are going to read adout Charolette's Web by E.B White. The book Charolette's Web is about a pig and it's friends. In the beginning ther is this guy that is going to kill Wilbur because he is a runt in the family of the other pigs. But a little girl named Fern said theat she would take responsibility of the pig. Then later on in the book she had to get rid of the pig to a guy that is Mr.Zuckerman beacuse it kept on getting into the garden. In the story there is this spider named Charolette. She would be always talking to Wibur all the time. Also in her webs she would write things like humble or some pig or something like teriffic. That is my review for the book Carolette's Web

This book was and still is one of my favorite children's book. The plot of the story, and how the charater's relate makes it one of my favorites. In this book Wilber the pig goes through up and downs with his family and friends. I think and believe that everybody should read this book.
