Little Miss Spider

Little Miss Spider

by David Kirk Illustrated by David Kirk

On the very first day of Miss Spider's life, she pops out of her egg to find her brothers and sisters scooting around her. But where is her mother? Lucky for Little Miss Spider, kind and caring Betty the Beetle is there to fill the role.

In this new mini-book format, genius storyteller and artist David Kirk has brilliantly recreated a lively and sweet adoption story in which Miss Spider searches high and low before happily discovering that a mother's love can come from many sources.
