BOOK SUMMARY: An affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the
rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that
befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads "Some Pig," convincing the farmer
and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved.
In this story of
friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E.B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and
miracle often found in the simplest of things.
