THE GUARDIAN “[…] gorgeous illustration […] intricate monochrome […] acid-bright touches of colour […] will prompt lively discussion.”

From the creators of the critically acclaimed The Night Gardener and Ocean Meets Sky comes a whimsical and elegantly illustrated picture book about community, art, the importance of giving back – and the wonder that fell from the sky.

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 Spider’s 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.
