Charlotte's Web


Published on October 15, 1952

E.B White was born on July 11, 1899, in Mount Vernon, New York. His parents named him Elwyn Brooks White, But he did not like or appreciate that name. White joined The New Yorker magazine as writer and contributing editor—a position he would hold for the rest of his career. He also wrote Stewart's Little. Elwyn Brooks White was the 6th child.

Summary: Wilbur the pig and the friendship with Fern Arable, who is the little girl who adopts him, and his barnyard friend, the most important is Charlotte the spider. Fern saves Wilbur from getting slaughtered and then they keep him at her uncles farm. Wilbur cries every day for fern, but she is always at school. Wilbur finds out that he is going to be slaughtered and then Charlotte decides to spin things in her web to help save Wilbur.

  • Wilbur: the story's main character, is born the runt of a litter of pigs and thought too weak to live until Fern takes pity on him.
  • Charlotte: is a barn spider who lives on a web above Wilbur's pigpen. She becomes like a mother to lonely Wilbur, telling him stories and singing to him, and teaching him about life and the loyalty of friendship.
Wilbur and Charlotte

Authors Writing Style:

I liked the authors writing style because this story gives us tons of detailed description, which means that we get a lot of information about the little things. I never got bored while I was reading this book.

I didn't like how the author made the chapters so short. I wish the chapters were longer and there was more of the book.
