Uncle (Chapter 17)
In this chapter we read about Fern and Avery at the fair. They were given some money to explore the fair “. . .where they could be happy and free to do as they pleased.” (p.121). Mr Arable says that, “. . . they’ve got to grow up some time.” (p.121). Share a time when you felt grown up and got to choose what you wanted to do. How did you feel at the time?
We also meet the large pig called Uncle. Wilbur is upset when he hears that Uncle is a larger pig than he is.
* Does size matter? Is big always better? Give examples.
