Read in December, 2009

In a Christmas craft book at the library, I had seen a project where you create pipe-cleaner spider web ornaments for the tree and it said it was based on a Ukrainian tale of a poor family waking up to find spiders have decorated their bare tree with glittering webs. It gave neither story nor the name of the story, so I checked out all the books I could find that seemed likely matches. This story isn't very Unkrainian, but the idea is the same. Logan loved the sweet illustrations and it was nice to find a story in which spiders are shown sympathetically.
