The uncommonly unique imagination of David Kirk has an equally uncommon source. "I found a small copy of The Gnomes' Almanac by a little-known Viennese author Ida Bohtta Morpugo. It was a cutout book simply subtitled: A Book for Children. In it, the pictures and verse about bugs, butterflies, and mice really came to life." That got him drawing and writing. Before that he made children's toys by hand. "I love making stories. The bookmaking process is a liberation for me from the years I toiled to produce handmade items. I think the life of a children's book author is bliss." Kirk lives in upstate New York, with his wife and three daughters.

PreSchool-Grade 2–Miss Spider is back in another charming story. Like many expectant mothers, she worries about being a good parent. " 'I'm not prepared,' Miss Spider sighed, and tied a silken string./ 'My babies are about to hatch, but I don't know a thing!'" Her worst fears come to life when her youngest bundle of joy, Squirt, finds a lost, brightly decorated (chicken) egg and sets out to find its mother. Along the way, he encounters many dangers, including an unexpected snowstorm and a hungry snake, but he makes a few friends, too. Miss Spider and her husband Holley catch up with Squirt and his friends just as they are nearing the hen coop and rescue him. About to return home with his mom and dad, Squirt realizes that something is not right, and hurriedly asks his new friends to join his family. The text is written in a light, singsong rhythm. There is plenty of fun wordplay that lightens the mood of Squirt's perilous journey. Kirk's highly stylized digital art, featuring eye-popping colors and 3-D characters, leaps off each page. Suited to reading aloud and sure to please.–Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN
