Salutations, challenge fans! This time around, I've weaved a web for you to untangle, set in the after-story of Charlotte's Web. This book is one of my favorites (my kids love it too!) and features a spider named Charlotte who has to save Wilbur the pig by building spider webs with words like "Terrific" and "Some Pig" in them. The associated 1973 cartoon movie and 2006 feature film are also both highly entertaining. In my challenge, you'll get to match wits with Lurvy, the farm hand, and decipher Charlotte's new plan to save Wilbur the pig. Answers are due by March 16, 2007. I had a lot of fun working on this one, and hope you will too.
As always, we'll choose three winning entries. Remember, you don't have to get all of the answers to qualify to win. We'll give a fine prize to:[br /]
- The best technical answer.[br /]
- The best creative answer that is also technically accurate.[br /]
- A winner chosen at random from all entries, no matter how incomplete or half baked.
We'll announce winners the first week of April.
Thanks... and have fun!
