About the Book

This is the book which turned me into both a book lover, and an English Major, at age 5. My sister, who was 8 at the time, had checked it out and asked my mother to read it aloud to her. I listened in, and was hooked from the first page. As soon as I could comprehend the basics of reading, this is the book I read, more than any other. The story (Talking animals! Friendly spiders!) is down-home, laugh-out-loud funny, but also charming and slighly sad, but still optimistic, at it's conclusion. While children who have never experienced farm life may not understand some of the details, the pace of the story is quick enough to keep everyone entertained, one chapter at a time.

Please, if you need the "perfect book" to read to a child who loves animals, Charlotte's Web would be a great choice!

About the Edition

Le livre raconte l'été heureux de la petite Fern, de son cochon Wilbur et de la meilleure amie de Wilbur, la magnifique araignée grise, Charlotte.

Wilbur et Charlotte habitent la belle vieille grange de l'oncle Homère. Fern passe des journées entières dans la grange, assise tranquillement sur son tabouret. Les animaux la traitent en égale et parlent librement devant elle. Un jour, Fern entend la brebis apprendre à Wilbur que les hommes l'engraissent pour en faire du jambon et du saucisson. Wilbur en est bouleversé. Que faire pour échapper à ce sinistre destin?

Charlotte le console et comme elle est très intelligente, elle conçoit un plan pour sauver la vie à Wilbur. Même Templeton, le vieux rat qui pourtant ne fait jamais rien sans contrepartie, est mis à contribution.

Patiemment, Charlotte tisse sa toile captant les insectes dont elle a besoin pour vivre, et les hommes dont dépend la vie de Wilbur.
