Charlotte’s Web is the story of Wilbur, a runt saved from the chopping block by Fern Arable, who beseeches her father to let her keep Wilbur as a pet. Despite living with Fern for a time, Wilbur is eventually sold to Fern’s uncle, Homer Zuckerman, where he meets a lively assortment of characters. Most notably, Wilbur meets Charlotte, a compassionate and intelligent spider who resides above his pen, and the two become fast friends. However, Zuckerman does not plan to keep Wilbur in the barnyard long, intending to serve him as a main dish in an upcoming feast. In an effort to save Wilbur’s life, Charlotte hatches a plan to sing Wilbur’s praises by stringing words through her web. White’s novel is unique in its portrayal of the unlikely friendship between a pig and a spider, and his beautiful depiction of the loving relationship between the two has made Charlotte’s Web infinitely readable for every age group, no matter the generation.
