Just awesome.




Charlotte's Web was one of my favourites as a kid, though in re-reading I skipped over the chapter about Wilbur's loneliness, because it made me too sad.

I must have been quite little, because the reference to Fern being 'only 8' annoyed me. What do you mean, only 8? I'm not yet 8.

Picking up a couple of years ago, I found I'd completely forgotten about Fern's older brother (age 11) coming to breakfast table with a knife and a rifle, before heading to school.

(There's nothing wrong: this is just how he goes to school. He's just a boy, who lives in the country, and this illustrates his interests vs Fern's gentle quiet nature.)
