A little girl (Fern) loves a pig named Wilbur. His friend Charlotte, a spider, saves him from the usual fate of being killed for food. The spider does this by writing little notes about Wilbur in her spider web that describe what kind of special pig he is. Everyone loved this pig and he became to famous to be killed. This is one of my children's favorite books. (Angie Newsom, college student)

a girl who lives on a farm that saved Wilber the pig from getting killed.
