One of the most anticipated holiday offerings, already topping the bestseller charts at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, The Spider Who Saved Christmas is an exquisite picture book slated to be released Oct. 15 and is available for preorder now at

Created by New York Times Bestselling author and award-winning broadcast host Raymond Arroyo (with illustrations by award-winning artist Randy Gallegos), this reimagined ancient legend is destined to earn its place among treasured traditions for seasons to come. In his signature cinematic literary style, Arroyo revives an all but lost tale surrounding the Christmas Story, which unveils the origin of tinsel.

Not since the much-loved Charlotte’s Web have readers and audiences been treated to an experience of wonder and nature through the eyes of a humble beloved spider. This “dangling visitor” named Nephila plays a pivotal role in a faith-filled journey through seemingly overwhelming circumstances to the great miracle of the Christmas story.

The Spider Who Saved Christmas debuts as part of a larger “Legend Series” of planned self-contained, episodic origin stories.
