All Spider wants is to be a family pet. But the family whose house she lives in are terrified of him. Whenever she tries to show them what a great pet she would make, they simply cry, 'Aaaarrgghh, Spider!'. Themes of tolerance and misunderstanding make key discussion points for children in this book.
Monks begins with a visual bang and an unusual premise: a spider wants to be this family's pet!
Monk's cartoonish illustrations are lively and offer some genuinely funny moments.
