Little Miss Spider: A Christmas Wish

by David Kirk

It's Christmas Eve and Little Miss Spider wishes most of all that she had a little brother or sister to help her build snowy creatures and eat Betty Beetle's fig pudding. But then Little Miss Spider meets Asparagus "Gus" Beetle, an orphan who is spending Christmas alone, and before long Little Miss Spider, Gus, and Betty Beetle are glowing with good cheer. Could Gus be the little brother Little Miss Spider has wished so hard for?
