Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Two spider sisters--Arabelle, a super web-spinner, and Kate, somewhat less talented--break free of their humdrum lives in the supply closet at NASA and stow away on an astronaut headed for outer space. Zero gravity impels the siblings out of their hiding place in a spare helmet, and they rush to secure themselves by spinning ``the first web in space.'' This insignificant story may confuse rather than entertain--illustrations frequently look as if the arachnids are outside the spaceship (they aren't); lackluster depictions of the web's strands are thick and unconvincing--no gossamer here. Also, the absence of any disciplinary measures for the runaways could raise a parental eyebrow: ``Even their mother was too proud to be really angry with them for going.'' The only color in the slick paper cutouts by Caldecott Honor artist MacDonald is in the title characters; backgrounds are drab and lifeless. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Arabelle spins a perfect web, but Kate thinks that's boring, and makes hers full of holes. She really wants to make the first web in space. Together they sneak aboard the space shuttle--Kate bold, Arabelle fearful--and together they manage to construct a web inside a spare helmet. MacDonald's bright collage pictures are lively, whimsical, and amusing; she manages to convey a lot of personality in the flat, paper cut-out spiders by exaggeration of eyes, contortions of legs, and changes of body shape. Visual inconsistencies make some of the pictures confusing, e.g., when one spider flies out of the helmet in a weightless free fall, the illustration does not clearly depict the problem. Despite this, the pictures are the stars here. They are far more clever than the somewhat plodding text that may raise questions. The description of weightlessness and other ideas about space flight are too brief to be understood without some background knowledge. Although the sisters do weave the first web in space, the conclusion seems hurried and anticlimactic. Older readers, who know about the space shuttle, may find the idea funny, but this is not one of this talented illustrator's best offerings. --Karen James, Louisville Free Pub . Lib . , KY
