From School Library Journal, Karey Wehner
"Soft pastel drawings complement the simple text of this serene tale of a green spider who makes its home in a lettuce patch. ... The descriptions of a spider's daily life are fascinating, and the quiet mood is perfectly conveyed by the delicate, yet true-to-life illustrations. The book's message, that all life has value, is powerful, all the more so for being understated. The tale of a spider's life has been done before but [not] so simply or so well."
