Woolly Bargains: A Scary Story For Young Peopleby Michael Anderson
Woolly Bargains, A Scary Story for Young People...Woolly Bargains is a fable featuring two characters, one a bright, energetic, young grasshopper and the other an old woolly spider who lives at the base of a large yellow bloom on a Pecado Bush. In the story the crafty old spider is unable to chase or catch his favorite meal, that of a grasshopper and so he proposes a deal with his new found green friend in which both will benefit. "All I ask is that you go to the meadow and bring me back a blade of grass and place it within the edge of my web. In return I will select the finest of the fruit from my parlor and place it outside the sticky rim of my weave." It is a story of personal values and the bargains we make to get the things we want. The deals between the grasshopper and the spider involve flattery, patience, risks and temptation. The outcome of the relationship, what happens to the grasshopper and the spider, is obvious to some readers and not so clear to others. Though by appearance it is written as a children's book it seems to have broad appeal to readers of all ages. You will see that some lessons are best learned early.
