An affectionate pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, White reminds readers to open their eyes to the wonder and miracle found in the simplest of things.

I really enjoyed this book, I remember my mother reading this book to me when I was younger, but I didn't remember all the details, so I made the decision to re-read this story.

It's a good story, that highlights the life on a farm from the point of view of the animals. I really liked it, I'm not sure I liked the rat, no in fact I don't really like the rat, I never like rats in any kind of setting, real or unreal.  The little characters are intriguing and I am really glad I have read this story again.

As I was reading I was laughing that this book probably wouldn't be published now since it's so 'graphic' (which is what one of my friends said when I asked her if she wanted a copy for her child O_o). I loved Charlotte she is a genius, and the little ideas she comes up with to save her friend are just amazing.  It's a wonderful read about friendship and listening especially thanks to Fern.

I highly recommend this as a good read to children who are a little older.  It's a great read!!
