Well, I've read Charlotte's Web. (My daughter's name is Charlotte, so I read it to her when she was young.) Templeton I remember, and Wilbur, and Charlotte: but everyone else, not so much. Still, I've read the book and seen at least one cartoon version, so good job, EH!

Time to start an August thread.

I remember Mrs. Black, my 4th grade teacher reading it to us, but all I remember is Charlotte and a web.
