The spider, I would say has inspired many a man. Remember Robert Bruce, the King of Scotland, who was inspired by the persistent spider that built its web after repeated attempts, ah! the little spider that influenced the history of Scotland. And let’s not forget Spider Man! Well, and Spider Charlotte was no ordinary spider, she would inspire the most negative of minds.
Charlotte’s Web is an award-winning children's novel by acclaimed American author E. B. White. It’s about a pig named Wilbur, and his friend named Charlotte.
The story is all about Wilbur’s friendship with Charlotte. Wilbur becomes a member of the community of animals who live in the cellar of Zuckerman's barn. Wilbur comes to know that he is going to be killed and eaten at Christmas; he turns to Charlotte for help. Charlotte has the idea of writing words in her web extolling Wilbur's excellence. Thanks to Charlotte's efforts, Wilbur not only lives, but goes to the county fair with Charlotte and wins a prize.
What happens at the fair? Is it the end of a beautiful friendship? How does Wilbur replay Charlotte for saving his life? Who are Joy, Aranea and Nellie? I suggest you read the book to find the answers.
Charlotte's Web was made into an animated feature film by Paramount Pictures in 1973. Publishers Weekly listed the book as the best-selling children's paperback of all time as of 2000, selling 100,000 copies in just 16 months.
Charlotte’s Web is wonderful book for children and adults to share. Read it with your child, if not read it for yourself. Just read it, for Charlotte’s Web is for anyone who appreciates life and friendship.
Reading Charlotte's Web many times, gives you different dimensions of her character, her sarcasm; her pride; her wit and above all her positive attitude.
An inspiring tale to be read and lived!!!!!!
