        OMG, this book was amazing. I do not know how to express how good it was. I love the whole series that has been made by E.B White. It was so good and I recommended all my friends to try this book and read it. I even told my teacher to get this amazing book. If you have not read this book yet you should read it!

              I didn't actually like this book very much. It's about a girl named Fern who lives on a farm and saves a runt pig named Wilbur from getting slaughtered one morning. They build a friendship, but then Wilbur discovers that they're still planning to slaughter him for Christmas dinner. Then Wilbur meets a spider named Charlotte though, everything changes. This book isn't badly written or really boring; it's really well written (Duh, E.B. White wrote it!) and it's much more engaging than a lot of the books today. It's just not my thing. I don't know what it was about the book that I didn't like, but it just wasn't my favorite. Still a good book though, and I recommend reading it since it's very famous and you might really enjoy it.

                      I love this book! Wilbur and Charlotte are awesome. I like reading how they work together to save Wilbur. My favorite part is when they go to the state fair.
