Character Role Analysis


Wilbur is the main pig on campus… or in the barn. You know what we mean.

Anyway, we follow Wilbur on his journey from the Arable kitchen to the Zuckerman farm and finally to the big county fair. When Wilbur faces some pretty tough stuff (like the prospect of becoming Christmas dinner!), we're right there in his corner, cheering our favorite little piggy all the way home.
