Critic Reviews

"The book has liveliness and felicity, tenderness and unexpectedness, grace and humor and praise of life...that only the most highly imaginative stories seem to grow." (Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review)
"White simply shares his story so intimately that adult listeners notice every nuance...For children the story of Wilbur and Charlotte will be sheer delight...White's story still has the power to mesmerize and teach us great lessons of friendship and life." (AudioFile)

Beautiful From Beginning to End

NOTHING IS LESS THAN NOTHING. IF SOMETHING WAS LESS THAN NOTHING, THAN NOTHING WOULD BE SOMETHING.
No matter your age, you will love this. It is beautifully and intellectually written. I particularly love the courteous characters and how well they talked to each other. I also like how White never talks down to his audience. This book gets an A+ from me.

Some book

Still my favorite audiobook. Not only is it a delight for children but for adults as well. What makes it incomparable is E.B. White's narration.
