"The book has liveliness and felicity, tenderness and unexpectedness, grace and humor and praise of life...that only the most highly imaginative stories seem to grow." (Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review)
"White simply shares his story so intimately that adult listeners notice every nuance...For children the story of Wilbur and Charlotte will be sheer delight...White's story still has the power to mesmerize and teach us great lessons of friendship and life." (AudioFile)
I am not sure who chose a man with a New York gangster accent to read a southern child's story but it sadly ruined the story. My child repeatedly asked why Charlotte sounded so mean. Bad choice audible.
Most delightful! A true classic story of love, friendship and life. With charming characters and a love for life in the form of the animals as seen through the eyes of a young girl.
I hate this book because its stupid and I don't know why people like it
I'm an adult but this one still tugs in my heart strings. Definitely still a classic in my opinion.
I have always loved this classic. This was my son's first time hearing the story.
Wilbur was my son's favorite character because he was such a great little piggy.
All about personification. A lovely book I highly recommend it. Charlotte is the hero she saved Wilburs life!
A children's book however I am an adult and enjoyed it!
Excellent for our road trip!
Great reader, the children were fully engaged and the length was perfect for our trip. Stuart Little is another great story by the same author I would recommend.
How to tell a kid about death? This book is the answer.
It is a warm story for children, while not hiding the cruel aspects of life, it still feels warm.
