I'm taking a children's lit class this semester. One of the required books is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. I've never read it and, as far as I can remember, I've never seen any of movies or cartoons. So I was completely blindsided by the ending of Charlotte's Web. B had been out on the deck reading and he came in to find me sobbing and a bit of a mess. He knew the ending but hadn't realized I had not known.
Oh well. I ended up liking the book as a whole. Just be prepared!
