An adorable book for young children, I try and pair it with a small plush pig.

The value of this book lies almost exclusively in its beautiful illustrations, rendered in a soft, realistic, dreamy style. The fatal flaw is perhaps not in the overly simplistic writing but the reader's expectation that this is a young child's introduction to Charlotte's Web. It most definitively is not. Charlotte is nowhere to be found-- it is a short, simple story of a runt pig and a child. The fact that his name is Wilbur and hers, Fern, is the sole introduction to E. B. White's masterpiece of compassion, cleverness, and love.
