it was amazing

Charlotte's Web is a fascinating story about friendship. The protagonist of the story is a piglet named Wilbur. The story starts out with a sad tone, seeing that the farmer wanted to kill one of the newborn pigs because he was weaker than the rest. Fern, the farmer's daughter begged to spare his life, and so, she names the pig Wilbur. They shared a happy life together and Wilbur was a curious piggy, always exploring. But with each passing hour, time flew by. Wilbur was sold to another ranch and became lonely. Fern wasn't there to support him anymore. The next day, he heard a lovely voice. She was a spider named Charlotte. They soon became friends and shared many happy thoughts with each other. One day, Charlotte over heard that Wilbur would be killed and cooked for Christmas. Fearing for his safety, Charlotte wanted to make Wilbur famous, so that the farmers will reconsider ending Wilbur's life. She began to spin a gorgeous and spectacular web. The next day, Charlotte was exhausted, looking very tired. It gave us the feeling that she was on the verdge of death. The web she spun was a beautiful web with Wilbur's name on it. Soon, Wilbur became famous all over the county. Fern visited him. On the day, they attended the county fair and Charlotte has passed away, due to the fact that spiders live a short life. With all the experiences and good times that she shared with Wilbur, she will always remain in his heart.

This book is truly a wonderful book. One that can bring you to tears.
