E. B. White’s cherished story is sixty years old! This edition will include a moving foreword by renowned children’s book author and Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo.
“Some pig.” These are the words in Charlotte’s web, high in the barn. Her spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, as well as the feelings of a little girl named Fern...who loves Wilbur, too. Their love has been shared by millions of readers.
To celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of Charlotte’s Web, Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo has contributed a poignant foreword to E. B. White’s beloved book. In it, she notes, “Every word of Charlotte’s Web bears the full weight of White’s love for the people, seasons, animals, and arachnids of this world. And every word of the book shows us how we can bear the triumphs and despairs, the wonders and the heartbreaks, the small and large glories and tragedies of being here. We can bear it all by loving it all.”
Kate DiCamillo’s foreword will be available in the hardcover, paper-over-board, and paperback digest editions of Charlotte’s Web.
