A tale of terror (well, terror from a spider and a bee¿s perspective) in Izzy the Lizzy written by Renee Riva and illustrated by Steve Bjorkman will keep children turning page after exquisitely illustrated page to share in a desperate web of suspense. Will hunger and a captured dinner win out? or is there room for mercy and compassion from hungry stomachs? Anastasia the Spider and Jeb the Bee aren¿t so sure. With whimsical rhyme set to colorful pictures and captivating expressions, children will eagerly anticipate the answer each time the book is read.

I liked this book because it appeales to both children and kids. It is humorous, entertaining, has engaging characters. It also conveys a good message about treating others as you would like to be treated. I highly recommend this book.
