“… the best children’s book of the past two hundred years” – The Children’s Literature Association
Chin up!  After a restless first night in the Zuckerman family barn, a wide-eyed young pig named Wilbur meets a witty and resourceful spider named Charlotte.  When Wilbur learns through his fellow barnyard creatures of some unsettling plans for his future, Charlotte takes it upon her spinnerets and her trusty web to save him.  Directed by award-winning Northwestern faculty member Mary Poole, this magical tale of what it means to be a good writer and a good friend features the much-loved characters created by E.B. White.
