The story started at the part where Mr. Arable was going to kill the newborn runt
pig that is Wilbur. Fern saved him at the very last minute. Her father gave her the runt
pig because of her ripeness. She took care of the pig like what her mother did to her.
Because of that, the runt pig turns to a healthy and fleshy pig to the point that it needs to
be on a barn. Fern’s Uncle Homer bought the pig to her for only six dollars.
The barn was large. Fern was always there to watch Wilbur. There is a time
when Wilbur escaped because Fern didn’t visit; but he was happy that time because he
felt the pleasant wind even though it turned out bad. The other animals are not close to
him. They are always snubbing him that’s why sometimes he’s very lonely. One night, he
heard a voice and that was Charlotte who is very friendly to him compared to the others.
They became good friends. The other animals started to get along with them. The farm
is getting larger because some of the animals are laying eggs like when the goose laid 7
Wilbur was very interested to Charlotte. He was amazed that she can do lots of
things. For him, she was talented even though he was not happy when he heard that
she was eating bugs, grasshoppers and other insects. One day, he tried doing the
weaving because he wants to show the other animals that he can do anything. But he
realize that he can’t do what she can do.
Wilbur discovered that he will be killed and that really bugged him. All he can do
is cry about that; but Charlotte said that she’d save him so he doesn’t have to worry
about it. Fern hears all the talking of the animals and she’s always talking about it at
home. Charlotte’s promise to Wilbur is not forgotten so she started the move. She wove
“some pig” on her web. The people started to notice it to the point that there are always
people there watching Wilbur. After a few days, Charlotte change the word to “terrific” so
Wilbur has to look terrific for all the people watching him. Fern always know the plan
because she can hear them but her mother is worried about her so she asked Dr.
Dorian. According to him, she is normal and nothing to worry about.
Going back to Wilbur, the Zuckerman decided to join a fair for Wilbur. All of them
are present to the fair except for the other animals. Charlotte and Templeton hide to be
with Wilbur. There, they met Uncle, the pig who won the first prize. It’s fine because
Wilbur received a special award because Charlotte wove “humble” on his place. After
the awarding, Wilbur noticed Charlotte with the egg sac looking so weak. She decided to
stay there, Wilbur is sad about her decision so he decided to took care of the egg sac.
Charlotte died after the fair. The barn looks odd for him because Charlotte isn’t there.
The egg sac hatch and Wilbur was very happy: but they all leave except for the three
who stayed with him at least. He was very thankful for Charlotte that he will not be killed
