This is an enchanting retelling of a traditional German tale, written for children just learning to read. It's Christmas Eve and all is ready for Christmas - until seven spiders cover the tree in cobwebs. Will Christmas Day be ruined - or can Father Christmas save the Day? In this title, clear, compelling text is matched with lively illustrations, and puzzles at the back consolidate learning. Part of the successful "Usborne First Reading" series, it is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, Principal Lecturer in Education and reading specialist at Roehampton University.
