Following the success of the popular DIARY OF A WORM, this clever picture book offers a light look at a spider's existence. This production has lots of fun sound effects (little organ runs here and there, water splashing, wind blowing, the crunch of a skin molting), which are very attractive to children. Narrator Harry Bliss supplies a variety of fun voices for the story's other characters, from playful friend Fly to grouchy Grampa to Fly's worried mom. Bliss also strikes just the right happy notes as narrator, calling playful attention to the levels of humor without overdoing it, so a variety of ages will enjoy this book.
