Published in London by Folio Society. 2009. Reprint. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Cover printed with an illustration by Garth Williams. 192 pages with 47 colour illustrations. As the runt of the litter, Wilbur the pig is destined not to survive. Fern the farmer's daughter thinks this is 'the most terrible case of injustice' and because of her pleas, he is allowed to live. In the barn, he's given heaps of food and starts to put on weight. What Wilbur doesn't realise, however, is that other plans are afoot. 'I don't like to spread bad news,' says the sheep, 'but they're going to turn you into smoked bacon and ham.' Wilbur cannot believe his ears. Why save him, only to fatten him up and eat him later? Fortunately, help is at hand in the unlikely form of Charlotte, a sagacious spider resident in the barn who dreams up a cunning plan to save Wilbur from his otherwise inevitable fate.
