The magical children's tale Charlotte's Web shares an anniversary with the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, having been published on Oct. 15, 1952. The story, inspired by the creatures reclusive author E.B. White found on his Maine farm, became an instant classic and was part of the reason he later won an honorary Pulitzer Prize. He called the book "a paean to life, a hymn to the barn, an acceptance of dung."
