In Diary of a Spider, the team that delivered the best-selling Diary of a Worm spins another witty tale of an unusual protagonist and his unique view of the world. This time the hero is a spider, whose best friend is a fly, and though his world is experienced mostly from upside-down, and includes sticky webs and gigantic shoes, his musings will delight and reassure young readers. Through droll diary entries the baseball-capped son in a family of worms describes both the dangers and the perks of life underground in Diary of a Worm. Having a head that looks like your rear end is just one of the difficulties, as well as being dug up for bait. This clever and energetic worm’s-eye-view of the world will leave children – and their families – howling with laughter.
