Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
When Shimmer and Squirt battle over the last soccerberry ball, their mother, Miss Spider, makes them sit together on an old stump until they forgive each other. Before long they find they are playing and laughing together, and past grievances are forgotten. The design of this adaptation of an episode from the television series Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends is well-suited for beginning readers. Bright-colored, full-page pictures face white pages with large black text (although some of the vocabulary such as "mandibles" or "glistening" may trouble new readers). The digital art illustrations are closer to the television show than to the eye-popping art of the original Miss Spider books upon which the series is based. In spite of the action sequence suggested by the two spiders' fight over the soccerberry, the storyline is rather static and the writing mechanical. Still, fans of the series will likely take comfort in the familiar characters. Reviewer: Heather Christensen
