Charlotte’s Web, the classic children’s story about Wilbur the pig and his spider friend, Charlotte, turned 60 yesterday. I remember reading this book night after night at our kid’s bedtime, making up different voices for all the characters, and all of us crying when (spoiler alert) Charlotte dies. Fortunately, I was able to capture some photos of Charlotte’s descendant for the anniversary. Thanks E.B. White for your poignantly endearing tale.
