In this excerpt from Charlotte’ Web, Wilbur, a bored and lonely young pig, wants a little excitement. A friendly goose shows Wilbur how to escape from his pen, but the chaos and clamor that result prove to be too much for him to handle. At the end, Wilbur finds that he has some more choices to make. (McGraw-Hill Open Court, 2002)
