Not the spider, but the book! Have you ever read Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster? It is one of my favorite books! I have read it four or five times. The book is best reread, because of the ending. I won't spoil the book for those who haven't read it, but it is just a wonderful ending.
I've mentioned before how I love to reread books from my childhood/teen years. My town library was small, and I ended up reading many classics because that's what they had. Sure, they had the fluff, but the classics stand out in my memory.
By the way, I was very disappointed when my sisters and I managed to track down a copy of the movie (which was extremely hard. Can you imagine calling a movie store, and asking after a movie named "Daddy Long Legs". First, they've never heard of the book, and secondly they probably thought it was a horror movie. LOL). But anyhow, where was I? Oh yes, very disappointed with the movie. (There are actually two--a Mary Pickford film, and then a later film.) Someone should remake this movie. It is such an enchanting tale, that could well do without Fred Astaire dancing about. (Advance apologies to Fred Astaire-lovers!)
