It fell from the sky on a Thursday. None of the insects know where it came from, or what it is. Some say it's an egg. Others, a gumdrop. But whatever it is, it fell near Spider's house, so he's convinced it belongs to him. Spider builds a wonderous display so that insects from far and wide can come to look at the marvel. Spider has their best interests at heart. So what if he has to charge a small fee? So what if the lines are long? But as Spider raises the prices, insects stop showing up, much to Spiders bemusement. And then, all of a sudden, an unexpected disaster hits and the marvel disappears!
This charming story is accompanied by characterful illustrations, and also teaches children important life lessons about greed and the importance of sharing.
