Title: Charolette's Web
Author: E.B. White
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


When a young farm girl finds out that her dad is about to kill the runt from the newest litter of pigs, she rushes to the aid of this helpless animal. Her dad sees that she is genuinely concerned about the pig and so he gives him to her as a pet. This is the start of a long lasting friendship between Wilber and Fern.


An Unlikely Pair

Fern instantly falls in love with her new pig, Wilber and is at his side every step of the way. As Wilber grows up though, it becomes increasingly obvious that Fern's dad, Mr. Zuckerman, still plans to sell Wilber to the market. That's when the star of the book, Charlotte the spider, steps in to help. She, along with the other barnyard animals, don't want to see their friend, Wilber, sent to his death so she devises a crafty plan. She weaves a web that says Some Pig. Mr. Zuckerman is awestruck and soon people from all over the county are coming to see this amazing hog.


Off to the Fair

As the buzz around Wilber continues to grow, the Zuckerman's decide that they should take advantage of his fame by showing him at the local fair! Wilber is trucked down to the fairgrounds, with a few stowaways like Charlotte and his friend Templeton Rat, to begin his days as a prize pig. Fern continues to visit Wilber and his friendship grows with Charlotte. Wilber is learning so much everyday - it's kind of overwhelming for him. Despite the drama and hardships that Wilber and his friends face, they each bring something unique and helpful to the group.


The Bottom Line

Charlotte's Web is certainly a tear-jerker. Every chapter something dreary is happening and you never quite know what the fate of Wilber will be. Despite its sadness, there is also a great message of hope that radiates from this classic tale. The most unlikely creatures join forces to comfort and save one another - even when if it means putting themselves in harms way. Charlotte's Web is a must read for peeps of all reading levels. Plus, it will get you in the mood for the upcoming Charlotte's Web movie, due out in 2006.

I don't think anyone, especially teens, should swear. It's pointless and idiotic! Why does the world do it, anyway? It doesn't get you ANYWHERE.
