I assume Wilbur is the "child" (piglet).

Also, I object to the description of Charlotte as "homicidal". Insecticidal, yes.

Black widow? Maybe.

Baby black widows, as well as many other spider species, use silk parachutes to disperse.

The very first book that I ever read AND enjoyed. And it's a gentle, homespun introduction to mortality, moral dilemmas and the importance of loyalty... with just a touch of non-judgmental theology thrown in for good measure.

I gave my copy to my daughter when she was 6 or 7. And she loved it, too.

Anyway, black widows get a bad rap. I've lived in two completely infested areas of Ca. for years and haven't had a single issue, including the one I found living right behind my headboard. They are very,very timid and much prefer to run than fight. Check your shoes if you haven't worn them for awhile though, to make sure you don't accidentally corner one.

Books like Charlotte's Web are the reward for learning how to read. The original cartoon was very well done but thankfully I found the book first.


In 3rd grade each homeroom teacher (that was actually reading/social studies/language class) has a book corner the teacher decorated herself. My teacher had a little barn area, the books were lined up on the fence and the barn was a ceiling high mural of Wilbur standing in the barn's entrance, Charlotte in her spot at the top with SOME PIG in her web.

Ahh, the 80s.

You shut your whore mouth. They are wicked, evil creatures who seek only to destroy all mankind, and that's what I'm sticking to.

Now we know how that invasive species of bacon stealing barn spiders came to New York.

When White had to go back to New York City, he cut down the spider's egg case and took it with him. Eventually the baby spiders hatched, and after that, White finished spinning his now-famous tale.

That is the work of a truly insane person...he should have been finishing the book from the inside of an institution.

Another True Fact... the book sitting closest to me at this moment is Elements of Style, which he co-authored with William Strunk. It's the 'Hack Writer's Bible'.

""Where's Papa going with that axe?" said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast. "

I'd like to credit a forgotten fellow farker with pointing out that this is as great a first line as anything in all of English literature. Characters, setting, and plot, all introduced in one elegant package after which it is impossible to stop reading.
