It's been years since I read this book. What I remember is that Charlotte the spider seemed to be very loved and had much respect from the animals on the farm. The little girl in the story loves the animals and saves a little pig. Later her father, the farmer, was going to slaughter the pig, but Charlotte cleverly spins a message in her web and opinions change. The ending is very sad but it's a very good story.

The power of words adjoins the power of actions in a gracefully composed tale of friendship that transcends generations.

The best part is that the movies don't change the basis of the story.

This is a good book for children, but it seems overrated.

A wonderful tale of friendship and compassion, and the importance of never judging a book by its cover.
