But she can't do this on her own; she needs Spider’s help! The two are inseparable - literally because they are connected by a spider thread - until the moment Ella and Spider each want to draw a different picture. They’re both stubborn and turn their backs on each other. The spider thread breaks in two. Ella and Spider each go their separate ways and make spider web drawings on their own, but this doesn't work out too well. Ella becomes frustrated. To make matters worse, her magic wand goes haywire. It doesn’t take long before Twig City becomes a jumble of knots. Ella wants to clean up the tangled mess and starts to wind the spider thread into a tight ball, but this is a big chore... Meanwhile, Spider has started the pursuit of the runaway wand. He jumps on it, manages to get the wand under control and steers it towards Ella.
