Fairy glens, ice trolls, trees with glass leaves, and walking catfish—this is no ordinary road trip! Bundle up and pile into the car for a truly magical winter vacation with this month’s issue of SPIDER. Make pit stops along in the way in some of the ‘tastiest’ towns in America, and join Doodlebug and Dandelion on their drive through an enchanted forest! Find out how an unhappy pine tree learned to love her needles, vanquish an ice troll, and then make your very own snowboarding trolls out of pine cones! Finish up your trip in the North Pole and learn a little bit more about the rulers of the frozen sea: polar bears. Then, once you’ve worked up a bear-sized appetite, try out Miro’s new recipe for a hearty hummus snack. It’s perfect for eating while reading these stories and poems:
