New 25th Anniversary Edition: This adorable book takes us back in time to the very first day of Miss Spider's life
Little Miss Spider has just popped out of her egg and is wondering where her mother could be. The spiderling's plaintive cries are heard by a passing beetle, who offers her kind assistance. The search continues, and suddenly our heroine finds herself in harrowing danger. Will the one who loves her best save her in time?
David Kirk's extraordinary illustrations explode with brilliant, glossy color and charming personality. His shiny close-up oil paintings catch young readers like insects in a web (but with much happier results). Adopted children and those in nontraditional families may take extra pleasure in the message this flashback story provides: your mother is the creature who loves you best--whomever that may be.
