    The Petal Fairies #4: Charlotte the Sunflower Fairy (EBK)

    by Daisy Meadows

    Charlotte the Sunflower Fairy's petal is tough to find in a sea of sunflowers. But then things get even trickier—the goblins are dressed up as sunflowers, too!

    From the moment they met their first fairy at the end of a rainbow, Rachel and Kirsty have been good friends to Fairyland, helping the fairies defend their home against mean Jack Frost, who is on a constant quest to steal their magic. Now they're helping the Petal Fairies, who keep flowers everywhere blooming beautifully. At least that's what they're supposed to do—but when Jack Frost's goblins scatter the fairies' magic petals throughout the human world, all growing things are in danger. Rachel and Kirsty must help the fairies find their petals, or the world's flowers will wilt and die! Find the magical petal in each book and keep Fairyland in full bloom!

About This Book

American prose stylist E.B. White presents one of the best-loved stories of all time. And a heartwarming portrait of one of the best-loved pigs of all time.

Wilbur is the runt of a litter born to a pig on the farm of Fern Arable's father. When it is announced that her father is going to kill the pig, Fern rushes forth to save it, asking of her father: "If I had been very small at birth, would you have killed me?" Her father spares the pig, but only if Fern agrees to care for it. Falling in love immediately with the little pig, she feeds him regularly with a bottle, and names him Wilbur.

Wilbur is Fern's constant companion until he grows big enough to be transferred to his new home in the barn of Fern's neighboring uncle. Fern is able to visit Wilbur, but is unable to see him as often. Out of boredom, Wilbur begins to befriend other animals in the barn, who often patronizingly instruct the still naïve little pig in the ways of life. His most important friend, however, turns out to be a spider named Charlotte, who occupies a web in the corner of a doorway above him. Her love for Wilbur, coupled with her ingenuity, will save Wilbur's life.

A Newbery Award winner, Charlotte's Web has warmed the hearts of millions for nearly half a century. E. B. White's elegant style creates a lucid text that makes this novel accessible for even the most struggling reader. Veteran illustrator Garth Williams contributes the delicate pen-and-ink illustrations that enhance this sensitive story.
