Charlotte’s Web

The second term has begun in Mthatha and my English class is meeting again. Thanks for all your input to my request for book ideas a few weeks back. We are now reading Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White and so far, so good. They knew that a web had something to do with a spider and seem pretty clear on how pigs live so that’s good. I’ve been struck by how genuinely good the book is and how satisfying it is to read White.

That is a really great book, although it actually comes third for me in preference. I liked "Trumpet of the Swan" best, followed by "Stuart Little." I'm not as big a fan of "Elements of Style." I just couldn't connect with the characters, and the plot wasn't very clear.
