Book: Everyone knows the plot to this story. Fern rescues a tiny pig from death. She raises it and calls it Wilbur, but when it gets big, it has to move to a farm. On the farm, Wilbur learns that other animals can talk and he can too. He meets a spider named Charlotte, and they spend the rest of the book trying to save him from certain death.
Movie: I was happy at how similar the movie plot was to the book.
Similarities: Nearly all of the major events were in place. It was a good version.
Differences: There are a few differences between the book and movie. First, Fern is younger than she is in the book.(if I remember right, it’s been a while) and they play up the romance more. Other than that, I can’t remember any other major differences. Maybe the kid spiders at the end are different? I don’t know.
Winner: Honestly, I think this one is a toss up. I like the book, and obviously you get a few more details from the book than the movie, but overall, the movie kept the feel of the original story very well.
