The signs of spring are here. Flowers are abloom, and the world of insects
is beginning to come to life. Two little ants are busy lugging the enormous
end of a breakfast roll towards the anthill. Acting on a suggestion from a
ladybird, they head for a snail shell to ask the snail to help them – and
are astonished to find the shell inhabited by a strange-looking little
creature with many eyes and many legs. It is Water-Spider.
adventurous story begins with Water-Spider and his friends, and will not end
until spring has said good-bye.
