Format: Paperback
Poor little spider! She just wants to be a family pet but despite showing the family how good she is at dancing, feeding and washing all they do is scream "Aaaarrgghh SPIDER!" and throw her outside.
It's not until she makes beautiful sparkly webs in the garden that the family reconsiders - much to the delight of the spider. However a beautiful twist at the end keeps the fun going until the very end!
This is a fantastic picture book and has been a great hit with my daughter (aged 3 and a bit).
It works on so many levels - it's got: emotive phrases (shouting "Aaaarrgghh SPIDER"), simple repetition for joining in ("out you go!"), simple language for early readers ("Look at me"), large bold simple pictures (with great expressions), a page of touchy-feely sparkly webs and a great sense of humour.
Since this book is just plain fun from cover to cover, it's sure to become a firm favourite with your family too. And since it's so much fun it won't become one of those books you'll get fed up with re-reading (and soi you won't have to hide it behind the sofa).
Suitable for young'uns up to starting readers.
If you like fun books, I also highly recommend:
"Hiccup. The Viking who was Seasick" by Cressida Cowell
"Wolf Academy" by Jonathan Allen
"Eat your peas" by Kes Gray and Nik Sharratt

Format: Paperback
I bought this book in an attempt to stop me passing on my totally irrational fear of spiders onto my then 16 month old daughter. (It also made a nice change from stories about baby animals). At first I worried that the book might be too grown up for someone so young but I shouldn't have worried. The illustrations are just fabulous, very eye-catching and vibrant with some great detail. The story is simple enough for young readers and very funny and it soon had my daughter (and me)giggling out loud.
As a consequence, 'Spider' was one of the first words in her vocabulary. Now just over 2 years old, my daughter still loves this book and it is much-requested tale at bedtime, and whenever she wants the comfort of something familiar.
A success all round. I cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it, you won't regret it.

I couldn't agree more with the other reviews. "Spider" was also my daughters first word, and she loves this book! It is equally loved by her 3 yr old cousin too. The illustrations are fantastic, and we're still not bored of it.

This has been a favourite for my girls (now aged 3 yrs and 18 months) for a long time. My youngest now says 'arrrgh!' in a comedy way whenever she sees a spider! It's a fun book which makes a great gift. I read one review which talked about it being sexist (the mum in the story is the one doing the cleaning, the cooking, the shopping) but in our house that's me and I do all those things. I can understand why some might make the point though, although I wouldn't have noticed it until someone said it. All in all, a fun book!

My 12-month-old LOVES this book. Little spider wants to be a family pet, and tries to show them how good she'd be, but they are always frightened when they see her (out... you... go!) He was transfixed from the first reading, and before long was "reading" it to himself (turning to the pages where the family screams and shrieking with excitement himself). Highly recommended.

Borrowed this from the library and am now buying a copy as it's by far my 2yr old Son's absolute fave book. Cute story and funny illustrations. As per another review my Son joins in miming spider's actions and shouting out at the appropriate points. I shall never look at a spider in the same light again ;-D
