Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Just about perfect.” Eudora Welty, New York Times bestselling author
“Any adult dipping even so much as a toe into the book’s magic is sure at least of dying young, even if he lives to be ninety.” P. L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins
“Possibly the greatest children’s book ever written in the English language.” Jane Langton, author of The Transcendental Murder
“This family classic, loved and enjoyed now by two generations, celebrates its 50th anniversary with a remastered CD edition. The sound is clearer and perhaps a little more crisp, but E.B. White’s voice is the same—avuncular and with a twang of New England and New York…. He’s reading the story to us, much as a parent would read to a child…White simply shares his story so intimately that adult listeners notice every nuance of his sentences and his exquisite choice of words. For children the story of Wilbur and Charlotte will be sheer delight. Fresh as it was fifty years ago, White’s story still has the power to mesmerize and teach us great lessons of friendship and life. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
