I bought this for my mum for mothers day as 2 of the books she used to read to me and my brother when we were little. She loved it! Beautiful classic looking covers and the box the books come in is lovely too.

Description

E.B. White's three masterpieces of children's literature have been brought together in a beautiful gift set for readers age 8-12. Includes the original pictures by Garth Williams for Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, and wonderful, all-new illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Fred Marcellino for The Trumpet of the Swan.

"Charlotte's Web"
- pictures by Garth Williams
Children's novel by E.B. White, published in 1952. One of the classics of children's literature, this widely read tale takes place on a farm in Maine and concerns a pig named Wilbur and his devoted friend Charlotte, the spider who manages to save his life by writing words in her web. 

"Stuart Little" - pictures by Garth Williams
Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans he lives in New York City with his parents, his older brother George and Snowball the cat. Though he's shy and thoughtful, he's an adventurous and heroic little mouse. His daring escapades include racing a toy boat in a Central Park pond, retrieving his mother's ring from a drain, and crawling inside a piano to fix the keys for his brother. When his best friend, a beautiful little bird called Margalo disappears from her nest, Stuart is determined to track her down. He ventures away from home for the very first time in his life and finds himself embroiled in one exciting adventure after another, making new friends and meeting old ones along the way.

"The Trumpet of the Swan" - new pictures by Caldecott Honor Artist Fred Marcellino
Like the rest of his family, Louis is a trumpeter swan. But unlike his four brothers and sisters, Louis can't trumpet joyfully. In fact, he can't even make a sound. And since he can't trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays absolutely no attention to him. Louis tries everything he can think of to win Serena's affection--he even goes to school to learn to read and write. But nothing seems to work. Then his father steals him a real brass trumpet. Is a musical instrument the key to winning Louis his love? "...Humor abounds and beauty of nature, of relationships, of time passing shines through... will captivate children of all ages." -- School Library Journal
