Chapter 3 Escape

The barn was very large and very old.It smelled of hay,manure,the smellof the perspiration of tired horses the wonderful sweet breath of patient cows.And there was always hay being pitched down to the cows, the horses and the sheep.The barn was pleasantly warm in the winter when the animals spent most of their time indoors, and it was pleasantly cool in the summer when the big doors stood wide open to the breeze.The barn had stalls on the main floor for the work horses, tie-ups on the main floor for the cows, a sheepfolddown below for the sheep,a pigpen down below for Wilbur and it was full of all sorts of things that you would find in a barn.It was the kind of barn that children like to play in and it was owned by Fern's Uncle Homer L. Zuckerman.
Mr Zuckermanknew that a manure pile was a good place to keep a young pig as pigs needed warmth, and it was warm and comfortable there.Fern came almost every day to visit Wilbur.It made her happy just to be near Wilbur and it made Wilbur happy to know that she was watching him.But he never had any fun-no walks,rides and no swims.When Wilbur was almost two months old,the goose told him that there was a loose board,he squeezed through the fence.
But not long after, Mrs. Zuckerman saw him, and she quickly shout for help to capture the pig. Wilbur was so scared and confused!Soon the news spreaded and all the animals in the farm knew that Wilbur had broke through.Mrs. Zuckerman called her worker,lurvy,and her husband,Mr Zuckerman to catch Wilbur at once.Lots of animals pointed to where he should go; Wilbur is starting to get confused by hearing all the animals command!The farmers capture Wilbur at last and one of the worker fixed the loose board. As Wilbur lie down, he thought to himself, I'm really too young to go out into the world alone.
Chapter 2 Wilbur

Fern loved Wilbur more than anything.She loved to stroke him, to feed him and to put him to sleep.Every morning, she would make a bottle of milk for him.Every afternoon, when the school bus stopped in frount of her house, she would run to the kitchen to make Wilbur a bottle of milk.For the first few days of his life,Wilbur was allowed to live in a box near the stove, in the kitchen.Then,when Mrs. Arable complained, he was moved to a bigger box in the woodshed.At the week age of two,Wilbur was moved outdoors under an apple tree with a large wooden box full of straw with a doorway cut for Wilbur to move in and out freely as it pleased. And at night it would cover itself up with straw to keep itself warm.When Wilbur's appetite had increased, Mrs. Arable suggested that Fern should sell Wilbur to her Uncle Homer as whenever she was free, she could walk to Uncle Homer's barn to visit Wilbur.Fern agreed to it and she went to phone Uncle Homer.They agreed that she would be selling Wilbur for six dollars.The next day,Wilbur was taken from his home under the apple tree and went to live in a manure pile in the cellar of Zuckerman's barn.
Chapter 1

A piglet has been born and Mr. Arable wants to kill it because it is a runt This, according to Mr. Arable means that it was "smaller and weaker" than the other pigs and would "amount to nothing". Fern protests by saying that the pig could not help being born that way and that it would be an injustice to kill it. She pleads her father not to kill the pig. She even attepts to gran the axe from his hand! We can even see what a compassionate girl she is. She cares deeply for the life of the piglet. At first, her father seems firmly about his decision and brushes Fern off by saying that he knows more about raising pigs then Fern does. However, when Fern questions her father on whether he would have killed her if she had been "very small at birth", he softens up. Out of love for his daugther, he gives in to her pleas. He allows her to raise the pig much to her delight. From the very start of the story, we can see how much Fern adores the pig which she names "Wilbur". She even thinks about him during her lessons!
