This was a delightful children's book that even young readers could probably read to themselves or out loud to a parent, grandparent, or friend! What I really enjoyed also was the Huntsman Spider facts on the last page of the story and the coloring page! A pure delight even for us old folks who are young at heart! I particularly enjoyed the endings - here in America I name the spider's in my house and leave them alone knowing they're good at eating other bugs they might find in my home!
