Book Description

Are spiders really scary?

This light hearted, little picture book explores that question with lively and amusing rhyming verse.

Your child will certainly enjoy the fun, playful illustrations that capture the cheeky little spider's character. Follow as he jauntily tells you, from his own point of view, what it is like being a wonderful and sometimes naughty little spider!

Written and beautifully illustrated as an ebook, and now in a handy little paperback, this entertaining, catchy story will make sure you and your child never look at a spider the same way again!

Perfect for ages 2 - 102!

It's scary enough to hold children's interest and simple enough for them to join in with the reading.

A brilliant little book that helps children (and possibly some adults) to understand that spiders are not to be feared. Spiders are clever and amazing little creatures and children will love the humour in this book.

You cannot start children reading too young and there can hardly be a better way to do so than via Paula McBride's excellent books, both written and illustrated by her own expert hand.

Although grandson doesn't mind little spiders the big one he saw worried him, so I bought this book. Next time we see a big spider will get the book out to read .
