It is about a little girl called Fern who rescues a runt one morning. The runt gets named Wilbur. But then Wilbur gets sent to live on Fern’s uncle’s farm where he meets Charlotte, a beautiful grey spider. Soon Charlotte and Wilber were best friends but when Wilber is faced with the usual fate of nice, fat, clever little pigs, charlotte had to find a way to save him. She saves him by writing messages like “terrific” and “some pig” in her web which tricked the farmer so Wilber did not die. Then they went to a competition where Charlotte had babies but then died. Three babies stayed with Wilber and had a happy life.
