Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Their bold and vibrant colors plunge readers into a dreamy, fragrant springtime, where all manner of insects and flowers mingle in a blooming world." - Kirkus
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fresh from entertaining her insect neighbors in the bestselling Miss Spider's Tea Party, Miss Spider the arachnid ingenue prepares to scuttle down the aisle in this sequel. Essentially this offering is more of same-admirers of Kirk's unique illustrations, with their jujube-colored palette, fever-dream characters and 3D-style compositions, will be happily snared. If anything the colors are even more intense, dominated by rich autumnal tones and highlighted by deep indigos. The verse, however, is just as protracted as in Tea Party, and there's more of it-from an overlong string of mostly singsongy quatrains Kirk weaves a tangled tale of young spider love, a villainous suitor who attempts to do away with Miss Spider's intended, a rescue and, finally, nuptials (``With crickets fiddling in full swing,/ The katydids begin to sing./ June beetles spin in pirouettes,/ And clickbugs clack like castanets''). All ages. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Miss Spider, of Miss Spider's Tea Party (Scholastic, 1994), falls for Holley, an unprepossessing male spider. Her friend, May the beetle, feels she deserves better (``That pantywaist will never do'') and sets her up with handsome Spiderus Reeves, who turns out to be a cad. True love triumphs, though, and Miss Spider and Holley wed. All this is told in a long, ponderous, rhyming text that robs the story of any inherent interest it might have for children. Kirk's air-brushed artwork is extraordinary. His large-eyed, brilliantly colored insects have a 3-D quality. Spiderus Reeves, with the humanized face of a distorted harlequin, has a truly malevolent appearance. Yet the level of visual sophistication and suggestion of seductive evil is out of proportion to the cartoon innocence of the other characters. This makes him a singularly disquieting figure-more than just a villian to be vanquished: a personification of evil. Children may be attracted to the cover showing a smiling Miss Spider gazing shyly through her spider-web veil, but overall the book is flawed.-Karen James, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
Susan Dove Lempke
Beetle Ike, from "Miss Spider's Tea Party" , introduces Miss Spider to his friend Holley. Miss Spider thinks puny, bespectacled Holley seems like "Mr. Right," but her friend May, horrified that Miss Spider would settle for "that pantywaist," searches for a finer suitor. Handsome Spiderus Reeves seems a good possibility, but his villainous nature comes out when Miss Spider turns him down. There's a happy ending (Miss Spider makes a lovely bride in her spider-web veil), but only after some scary scenes of the ghastly, jagged-toothed Reeves bearing down on Holley. Kirk's oil paintings shine with color, and his verse never stumbles. But his earlier book was far more suited to children, with things to count and a theme of friendship. This sequel, with its romantic story, satirical tone, and longer text filled with wordplay ("co-webitation," etc.), seems pitched to an adult audience.

    Incredible tale of true love!!!

    I love this book. I bought it before my husband and I got married and it was our 'Something new' at our wedding! We now give this book as a gift at every wedding we go to!

    Great book...just not for children

    Like others have said I love the little miss spider books for not only their clever verse and great word usage it teaches my son but for the beautiful pictures. This book is no exception as far as the pictures are concerned but it is NOT a children's book. It's sexually suggestive, a little violent and very long. It is however wonderful for newly weds or couples. I love this book and think it's written beautifully. I am a little dissapointed that this isn't another great children's book but I shared it with my husband and we both enjoyed the story of love the book shares. Anyone who has ever been in love can relate to this book.

    Disappointed

    As an elementary school librarian, I would not include this book in my library. Not only is the text long and confusing for younger students, it is also inappropriate. A couple of the characters are bullies, Miss Spider¿s date with Holley - while nothing specific is mentioned - is highly suggestive, and Spiderus is a dominating and improper male character. As a fan of the series I was disappointed by this selection.

    In love w/ Miss Spider!!!

    David Kirk's Miss Spider series is timeless. As the others state, its illustrations are fantastic. I think all ages can love Miss Spider, I started reading the series to my daughter when she turned one and they are still her favorites.

    Adore David Kirks' Miss Spider books

    Absolutely incredible color and imagination David Kirk dishes out in his Miss Spider series of books. All the books are beautifully written but this one sold me just on what the author had written to his own bride on the front pages. This book is especially wonderful because my daughter can explore the beautiful illustrations while I read the much-longer-than-most-children's-books verses.
