The Tarantula Scientist by Sy Montgomery is a very interesting book. It takes you through all different type of spiders that you would not even imagine. Unlike most informational books, this book is extremely easy to follow and shows great graphics. If you are someone who is very interested in spiders, this is definitely the book for you. It does not even matter what age you are; you will enjoy it either way. Even if you are not a spider person you will find this novel to be quite entertaining.

This is a fast and fascinating read. Sy Montgomery brings life, humor and fact together with her engaging conversational writing style. My only critique is that it is much too short - I yearned to learn so much more about these wonderful animals and the people who study and care for them. Enjoy!

What a great book! The text is highly readable and appealing to children without being even the least bit condescending. The pictures give me the heebie-jeebies. Big, hairy spiders creep me out. So I guess they're perfect! Younger readers will enjoy the pictures and can have the text read to them if they'll sit still long enough. Reluctant readers as old as 13 will find themselves drawn into this fascinating (and creepy) book.
