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.
Extract from the book:
"It fell from the sky on a Thursday. Ladybird was perched on a leaf when it landed. 'I had a very good view. It bounced three times, then rolled to a stop," she said. The Inchworm insisted it only bounced twice. Everyone agreed it was the most amazing thing they hav ever seen."
Why we like It Fell From The Sky
A very original picture book that is perfect for curious minds! We are sure that it can lead to some interesting discussions (and lots of questions) about capitalism & greed.
