Charlotte's Web: A Puffin Book by E B White. A Puffin Book series brings together some of the best-loved stories ever written.

This is the story of a little girl named Fern who loved a little pig named Wilbur and of Wilbur's dear friend, Charlotte A.

Cavatica, a beautiful large grey spider. With the unlikely help of Templeton the rat, and a wonderfully clever plan of her own, Charlotte saves the life of Wilbur, who by this time has grown up to be quite a pig.

A time-honoured classic favourite. E. B. White was born in New York in 1899 and died in 1985.

He kept animals on his farm in Maine and some of these creatures crept into his books, such as STUART LITTLE which was made into a blockbusting film in 2000.

He received many awards including the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 1970, an award given every five years to authors who have 'made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children'.

Also by E B White and available in A PUFFIN BOOK: Charlotte's Web; Stuart Little; and, The Trumpet of the Swan.

Review by

My memories of this are vague but I know I enjoyed it when our teacher read it to us (just like an audiobook) when I was aged 7-9. Thus, I'll give it four stars.I've added in the details below that I "read" this in 1984, though it could've been a year either way.
