One of my all time favorite books. The films not bad either but then, oh dear, I stumbled across Charlotte's web 2. I should've known better but the thought of Charlotte's children and Wilbur was too great a thing to be able to avoid - but how I wish I had.
In my front garden I have my very own Charlotte. Now I don't particularly like spiders, but I don't hate them either. I don't love them enough to not break their web up when a butterfly is attached to it when I was a child - there was no dilemma for me there but the work they do to create that web amazes me. It's crochet and engineering like no other.
