MERYL STREEP: Meryl Streep headlines this audiobook, which features a full cast, a bit of music, and light sound effects!
ORIGINAL COVER ART: Like previous titles in the Listening Library Classics Program (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Grimm’s Fairy Tales), this audiobook has dynamic original cover art by a celebrated illustrator. Caledecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet, the author/illustrator of Some Writer!: The Story of E. B. White, did the cover art for this full cast edition of Charlotte’s Web, and also wrote and narrated a special appreciation for the audiobook.
ENDURING PHENOMENON: This Newbery Honor book is a classic that has warmed the hearts of readers for over 60 years.

“Meryl Streep and a stellar cast take us to the barnyard…Every portrayal of every character, major and minor, bursts with personality.”—AudioFile Earphones Award Winner
“Whether we’re talking E.B. White’s own 2003 narration or the version read to you by your parents/ grandparents/ favorite babysitter, Charlotte’s Web has always been an engaging listening experience.
