About the Author

E. B. White, the author of such beloved classics as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, was born in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and, five or six years later, joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. He died on October 1, 1985, and was survived by his son and three grandchildren. Mr. White's essays have appeared in Harper's magazine, and some of his other books are: One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E. B. White, Essays of E. B. White, and Poems and Sketches of E. B. White. He won countless awards, including the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which commended him for making a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children. During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to be sent to his fans, he answered, No, they are imaginary tales . . . But real life is only one kind of life--there is also the life of the imagination. Garth Williams is the renowned illustrator of almost one hundred books for children, including the beloved Stuart Little by E. B. White, Bedtime for Frances by Russell Hoban, and the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. He was born in 1912 in New York City but raised in England. He founded an art school near London and served with the British Red Cross Civilian Defense during World War II. Williams worked as a portrait sculptor, art director, and magazine artist before doing his first book Stuart Little, thus beginning a long and lustrous career illustrating some of the best known children's books. In addition to illustrating works by White and Wilder, he also illustrated George Selden's The Cricket in Times Square and its sequels (Farrar Straus Giroux). He created the character and pictures for the first book in the Frances series by Russell Hoban (HarperCollins) and the first books in the Miss Bianca series by Margery Sharp (Little, Brown). He collaborated with Margaret Wise Brown on her Little Golden Books titles Home for a Bunny and Little Fur Family, among others, and with Jack Prelutsky on two poetry collections published by Greenwillow: Ride a Purple Pelican and Beneath a Blue Umbrella. He also wrote and illustrated seven books on his own, including Baby Farm Animals (Little Golden Books) and The Rabbits' Wedding (HarperCollins).

Reviews

Extravagantes sucesos en una granja, manejado con ingenio y sabiduria sirven para arreglar de nuevo un mundo inperfecto.----The New Yorker
Hace sesenta anos, el 15 de octubre de 1952, E. B. White fue publicado la primera edicion en ingles de La telaraaa de Carlota. Se ha llegado a convertir en uno de los libros infantiles mas queridos de todos los tiempos. La telarana de Carlota es la historia de una nina llamada Fern que amaba a un cerdito llamado Wilbur y de la amiga de Wilbur Carlota A. Cavatica, una hermosa arana gris grande que vivand iacute;a con Wilbur en el granero. Con la ayuda de Templeton, la rata que nunca hacia nada por nadie a menos que recibiera algo a cambio, y con un plan maravillosamente inteligente, Carlota salvo la vida de Wilbur, quien se habia convertido en un cerdo muy grande. Como todo esto sucede es una historia de la magia de la ninez en la granja. Los miles de ninos que amaban a Stuart Little, el heroico ratoncito de ciudad, disfrutaran de La telarana de Carlota, Wilbur el cerdo, y Fern la nina que entendand iacute;a su idioma. Los cuarenta y siete dibujos por Garth Williams tienen todos los maravillosos detalles que los ninos adoran. Incomparablemente igualados a la extaordinaria historia de E. B. White hablan a cada nueva generacion, apacible e irresistiblemente.--From the cover
Una fantasia que tiene la belleza y la delicadeza de la telaraand ntilde;ana misma.----The Saturday Review
