Charlotte's Web : 70th Anniversary Edition, Paperback / softback Book

Charlotte's Web : 70th Anniversary Edition Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Garth Williams

Part of the A Puffin Book series

Paperback / softback


Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child.

On foggy mornings, Charlotte's web was truly a thing of beauty .

Even Lurvy, who wasn't particularly interested in beauty, noticed the web when he came with the pig's breakfast. And then he took another look and he saw something that made him set his pail down.

There, in the centre of the web, neatly woven in block letters, was a message.

It said: SOME PIG!This is the story of a little girl named Fern, who loves a little pig named Wilbur - and of Wilbur's dear friend, Charlotte, a beautiful large grey spider.

When Fern's uncle decrees that Wilbur must become bacon, Fern, Charlotte, Templeton the rat and all Wilbur's farmyard friends come up with an ingenious plan to fool the humans, and save their very special pig.

Joyful, funny, and deeply moving, Charlotte's Web is a story about the power of friendship, and celebrating what makes everyone special.

It is rightly heralded as one of the greatest children's books ever written. "E. B. White's writing is perfect... And Garth William's muted illustrations are entirely without fault.

Whether read aloud or solo, this is a book well deserving of its 'classic' status." - The Children's Book Review
