Printed in the United States of America. Standard Book Number: First printed in Contents I. Wilbur's boast 55 X. It's very small and weak, and it will never amount to anything.
So your father has decided to do away with it. Just because it's smaller than the others? Arable put a pitcher of cream on the table. Sheep 1: If Wilbur's life is to be saved, Charlotte needs help finding words. I think she can get help from our friend the rat. Templeton visits the dump and gets old magazines. Then Charlotte can copy the words. Charlotte: Good idea. But I don't think we can count on Templeton's help. Sheep 2: We'll get him to help. Here he comes now. Sheep 2: We're holding a meeting.
Templeton: Well, break it up. Meetings bore me. Sheep 1: Templeton, Charlotte needs new words for her web. So next time you go to the dump, bring back some old magazine clippings. They could help her save Wilbur's life. Templeton: Let him die. Sheep 2: You'll worry all right when next winter comes. You'll worry all right on a freezing morning next January when Wilbur is dead and nobody comes down here with a nice pail of warm slops.
You know that. Wilbur's food is your food. If Wilbur is killed and his trough stands empty day after day, you'll grow so thin we can look right through your stomach and see objects on the other side.
Templeton: All right. I'll bring back a word, if I find one. Narrator 2: Later, Templeton explored the dump. He liked the dump. There were great hiding places and lots of leftover bits of food.
On his next trip, he found a clipping from a magazine and brought it back to Charlotte. Templeton: How's this?
Crunchy would be a good word for your web. Charlotte: Just the wrong idea. Couldn't be worse. We don't want Zuckerman to think Wilbur is crunchy.
He might start thinking about bacon. No, we must praise Wilbur's noble qualities, not his tastiness. Go get another word, Templeton. Narrator 1: The rat grumbled and returned to the dump, sneaking through the piles of discarded tin cans for just a taste of leftover tuna. He soon returned to Charlotte with a strip of cloth. It's the label off an old shirt. We want Zuckerman to think Wilbur is nicely filled out, not all shrunk up.
You'll have to try again.
Templeton: What do you think I am, a messenger boy? I'm not going to spend all my time chasing down to the dump after advertising material. Charlotte: Just once more, please. Templeton: I'll tell you what I'll do. I know where there's a package of soap flakes in the woodshed. It has writing on it.
I'll bring you a piece of that package. Narrator 2: Templeton went off to the woodshed, grumbling all the time. He soon returned with a strip of cardboard. Templeton: There! How's that? What does it mean? Templeton: How should I know? You asked for words I suppose the next thing you'll want me to fetch is a dictionary. Wilbur: Yes, Charlotte? Charlotte: I want to see you in action, to see if you are radiant. Race to the end of your yard.
Now back again, faster. Jump into the air. Keep your knees straight and touch the ground with your ear. Do a back flip with a half-twist in it. OK, Wilbur. You can go back to sleep. OK, Templeton, the soap ad will do.
I'm not sure that Wilbur's action is exactly radiant, but it is interesting. Wilbur: Actually, I feel radiant. Charlotte and Templeton went along too. Narrator 2: One night, Templeton was anxious to go exploring and started to sneak away. Charlotte: Bring me back a word, Templeton. I shall be writing tonight for the last time.
Narrator 2: The rat mumbled something to himself and then disappeared into the shadows. He did not like being treated like a messenger boy.
Narrator 1: On the fair grounds, he discovered some wonderful treasures. Someone had tossed away their lunch sack. Inside Templeton found a crust of bread with little chunks of tuna on it, a hard-boiled egg with just one bite out of it, a wormy apple that had turned brown.
Then he remembered his promise to Charlotte and returned to the pig pen with a piece of newspaper. Charlotte: I hope you brought a good one. It is the last word I shall ever write. Templeton: Here. Charlotte: What does it say? You'll have to read it for me. Humble has two meanings.
That's Wilbur all over. He's not proud and he is near the ground.
Templeton: Well, I hope you're satisfied. I'm not going to spend all my time fetching and carrying. I came to this fair to enjoy myself, not to deliver papers. Charlotte: You've been very helpful. Run along if you want to see more of the fair. Templeton: I'm going to make a night of it.
