Book Review: Charlotte's Web by E. B. White - Reviewed by Romi Foster (24 Mar 2012)
I read this classic when I was about 10 and it has stuck with me always, and will continue to- the story is one that will make every reader smile and is one of the very special books that can make you see what the writer is writing about. You see Wilbur and Fern, you meet all the strange and glorious animals from the farm and take joy in learning about them and hearing their witty dialouge. It makes you warm to read of the fields in the sun and makes you yearn for rain when Wilbur plays in the mud. It grants you so much that it will, of course, stick by you throughout your life. It is one of those exceptional books that does so simply and without any force.
E. B. White was born in New York in 1899 and died in 1985. He kept animals on his farm in Maine and some of these creatures crept into his books, such as STUART LITTLE which was recently made into a blockbusting film. He received many awards including the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 1970, an award given every five years to authors who have 'made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children'.
