Charlotte's Web is my all-time favorite book. I read it many times as a child, and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally prepared to be disappointed by the film, and thankfully I was wrong. What a pleasure it was to see E.B. White's classic brought to the screen in live action. It was warm, funny and pretty. I was afraid the celebrity voices would be distracting, but they enriched the effect. The pace is perfect and the humor is smart, not cheesy. Bravo for this wonderful story of friendship and loyalty!
