One day a very colourful object fell from the sky – and all the insects are filled with awe and wonder as to what it might be, and how it came to be there. All of the different insects have their own ideas of what it could be – and readers will get their own ideas too! Is it an egg? Is it a flower? Could it have grown?

But it is spider who realises there is an opportunity to make a profit from it – and it is he who sets up a viewing system with queues and payment (in leaves) for all the other insects. As the wonder and queues grew, spider put up the prices and started hurrying the others along! Spider became very wealthy – but all the other insects lost interest and no longer came to see the marvel from the sky. Then disaster struck – and a bigger creature took the marvel and spider was all alone, with nothing…

What a delightful, innovative picture book. Mostly drawn in greyscale in sumptuous detail with splashes of colour that standout from the pages and create a wonderful contrast to the surrounding shades. There is so much to see in every picture – and this will be a wonderful book for children to predict outcomes and see the moral of the tale, which is so lightly told. The glorious full colour spread towards the end of the book has so much to see and point out! I think this will be a family and class favourite for many years to come!
