Publisher's Summary

Expanding upon the four-line nursery rhyme, storyteller David Novak spins an epic tale as young Itsy prepares to attempt what no spider has done before: scale the water spout. A nervous Mother Bitsy prepares her little Itsy as nourishing lunch; a fly salad sandwich, a bag of grasshopper chips, and a bottle of fresh-squeezed moth juice (100% natural). The result is an epic on a child's scale, in which determination, concentration, and grit are championed. "It's a good story to learn when we're young," says Novak, "because, well, we face a lot of water spouts when we're growing up."You'll also hear: "A Glass of Water", "Mon-Daw-Minth", "Jack", "The Snake's Disguise", and "Betsy and Jason."For Ages Pre-K to Grade Three
