Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Gail Gibbons assures youngsters at the very start that most spiders won't hurt people. She explains how the web-spinners came to be called arachnids and, with side- by-side portraits for easy comparison, how they differ from insects. She describes how spiders grow, their size, and, with a focus on selected species, the unique ways in which they catch their prey. The author/artist's final page of intriguing spider specifics wraps up a first-rate introduction.
