Charlottes Web, E.B.White

This is the Charlottes Web book.

Charlottes Web is a wonderful fantasy book. A little girl named Fern saves a little pig from being killed, her father is a farmer who wants to kill the baby because it's a runt. A runt is a baby animal who is smaller than the others and who is shoved to one side by the rest of the family. She takes care of it and called it Wilbur. She cared for it as if it were a baby; it even slept in her bed!
This is Wilbur the adorable baby pig.

But pigs grow like all animals grow and her father doesn't want a full grown pig in the house. So Wilbur has to go off to Fern's Uncle who lives just across the road and who has a free enclosure  in his barn but there Wilbur meets a lot more animals that he has never seen before. Fern visits him every day and reads him stories and keeps him company. One day he makes friends with a lovely spider named Charlotte who would do anything for him. But Fern's Uncle wants to  kill him and eat him for Christmas. Can Charlotte help Wilbur from the smokehouse?

The film doesn't differ much from the book. But I would recommend reading the book first so then you now what will happen. I bought the book in England and I read it in one day I was so intrested in it that I didn't want to put it down. My dad bought the film shortly after because he'd heard me talking about it at home. Thus I have the film and the book and I love them both.


  1. The book sounds amazing. I find it really sad. Have you watched the film?

    1. Yes I have watched the film and I nearly cried I can watch the whenever I like because I've got it.
