Charlotte and Wilbur meet, and Wilbur is horrified to watch Charlotte catch a fly. Early summer after seven goslings are born, Templeton, the greedy rat, stores a "dud" egg in his tunnel. The oldest sheep tells Wilbur he's going to be killed for meat at Christmastime. On Sunday morning at breakfast, Fern tells her parents the goose's eggs have hatched—all but the "dud" egg Templeton rolled away for himself. In recounting these events, Fern quotes "dialogue" from the barnyard.
Kenning Poems - Chatterpix
