Chapter 22"A Warm Wind"
After Wilbur returns to the barn, he places the egg sac in a very safe place. He took great care of the egg sac. Soon winter passed. The eggs hatch and tiny spiders start to creep out of the egg sac. Few days later, a lot of them formed a balloon and sailed away. Templeton grew fatter than any rat that had existed. Wilbur kept his promise and gave Templeton all his food. Templeton was as big as a baby woodchuck. Years passed, Wilbur was accompanied by three of Charlotte’s children. They are Aranea, Joy, and Nellie. Mr Zuckerman took great care of Wilbur as long as he live. Wilbur could not forget his best friend Charlotte for all she had done for him.

Wilbur calls upon Templeton to help him get the egg sac for him, but Templeton was unwilling of helping anymore and he did it slowly.
