Who knew spiders could be cute, not me... I hate(d) them... but how could I NOT fall in love with this little fella, not only is he cute, cuddly, on a "quest" but he Yodels!
As Spider emerges from his nest he is thrown in to Life and he starts his quest for Home, with a little help from some astonishing sources; danger lurks around each corner with some unexpected grins, the humour is rife; "bite the dust bunny!"
Ms Lopez has such a beautiful way of describing scenes/environments that you can almost feel yourself become scaled down to this world.
She has surpassed herself with this story; a wonderful world, some beautiful characters, various life lessons along the way, a multitude of fantastic little poems and lullabys and not to mention the fantasy element thrown in for good measure. I am so looking forward to getting this book in print to enjoy the illustrations too.
The moral compass of this book is steadfast. The telling of tales within the book is ingenious and gentle, but brutally honest.
Lori Lopez astounds me time and again with her use of words; be prepared to learn a few new ones!
Loves the author Bio at the end; Lori... you will always be my favourite crackpot! (ps they DO give out cards!)
