          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.

                    Despite never liking spiders, Charlotte was excellent. Wilbur is a runt. A pig runt to be exact and little Fern saves Wilbur from a terrible fate. However, when Wilbur grows up, he has to move to a farm. All the farm animals say the farmer is going to eat Wilbur. But Charlotte saves the day.
