Author Heather Vogel Frederick recommends Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White, illustrated by Garth Williams. “Why am I recommending this book? Are you kidding me? It’s the Great American Novel, as far as I’m concerned. I re-read it every year, just for the sheer pleasure of visiting Charlotte and Wilbur and Fern again—and also to take a master class in fiction writing from Mr. White. Nobody does it better!”
Charlotte’s Web (first published in 1952) is recommended for ages 8-12.
