A Plushy Parable: When Miss Spider and Holley go away for a web-weaving workshop, Pansy has trouble getting to sleep. Grandma Betty tells her a bedtime story about the "pussy willow plushies" -- a type of toy that was popular when Miss Spider was a kid. She then reveals that she still has Miss Spider's one, "Catty," and agrees to lend it to Pansy until Miss Spider returns. Pansy is comforted by the toy, but then devastated when she loses it. Then, when Spiderus finds it and gives it to Ivy as a gift, she faces a dilemma when she learns that it's missing and realizes that it doesn't belong to her.moreless
