Review:

It's Christmas Eve and Miss Spider should be feeling full of cheer. But even in her cozy home, among wrapped gifts and the brightly decorated tree, there's something missing. It isn't until Miss Spider finds a friend with whom to share the joy of the season that her one Christmas wish comes true.

David Kirk's much-loved Little Miss Spider (Little Miss Spider, Little Miss Spider at Sunnypatch School, etc.) continues to warm the hearts of her fans in this touching, jolly holiday tale. Young readers will enjoy the image of Miss Spider and her new friend Asparagus Beetle making "snow butterflies" (like our snow angels, but made with lots more legs) and dashing through snow tunnels "mined by the mice." Kirk's startling and shiny illustrations complement his singsong verses to present this tender Christmas message of compassion and friendship. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author:

Kirk has studied painting for more than twenty years, starting in junior high school. A graduate of the Cleveland Art Institute, his bold palette and unique style are influenced by everything from nineteenth century academic painting to 1930s animation. Mr. Kirk lives in upstate New York with his wife, Kathy, and his daughters, Violet, Primrose, and Wisteria.
