Overview

Charlotte's Web is an animal fable that deals with several important aspects of a happy life: friendship, heroism, con stancy, and death. And yet the story treats these topics indirectly.

In the Zuckermans' bam, unbelievable things happen in very believable ways. Animals talk, a spider writes words in its web, and a pig wins fame that can only be described as undying, since he avoids being turned into hams and sausages.
