Charlotte's Web

  

by E. B. White

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(1) Sea Level

Charlotte's Web is the kind of book that you want to read while snuggled up in bed. E. B. White uses pretty simple words and short sentences, so it's an easygoing read. Plus, there are lots of illustrations by Garth Williams. And who doesn't love a good illustration? But even though it's easy to get the gist of this tale, it also takes up the topic of death a lot. So yeah, that's a bit of a downer sometimes.
