#tbt: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. 192 p. HarperCollins Publisher, January, 1952.
In #tbt news, 2017 marks the 65th anniversary of the publication of Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. This story of a runty pig named Wilbur, who was rescued from the ax by a feisty girl named Fern and then saved from being turned into a Thanksgiving roast by a true friend named Charlotte, won White a Newbery Honor and leagues of fans. At 65, this timeless classic shows no signs of retiring. If you have not read it, you really must. And, the audiobook is not to be missed! White narrates it and his performance is superb!
