Top 10 animal stories

Sarah Lean is the author of A Dog Called Homeless and A Horse for Angel.

One of her top ten animal stories, as told to the Guardian:
Charlotte's Web by EB White

This is one of my favourites and for no small part because of the unique portrayal of Charlotte, the nurturing spider. The circle of life is woven in an intricate web of the miraculous and the ordinary as Wilbur the pig's life hangs in the balance. Outstanding from the first line onwards.
Read about another book on the list.

Charlotte's Web is a book Kate DiCamillo hopes parents will read to their kids.
