A beautiful holiday story, by the creater of Miss Spider, David Kirk!

I liked how Ms. Spider's son was featured in this story.

I also thought the illustrations were just first rate! Of course, what would you expect from David Kirk?

David Kirk is the creator of children's books that follow the character Miss Spider. Before writing books, he made colorful toys that were sold in hand-painted boxes. He was urged to write children's books when his toys caught the interest of a book packager. It wasn't difficult to figure out what he would use as characters in his stories: his daughter, Violet, had a liking for bugs.
