‘That spider needs a good squishing!’
Spuds is just an ordinary, everyday leprechaun, living life quietly with his wife, Rose. He’s not easily upset.
In fact, there’s only one thing that Spuds hates, and that’s spiders. So he wasn’t at all happy when Leggers McWeb arrived at Toadstool Cottage …
Spuds and the Spider is a heart-warming tale of friendship for children.
