NEW Book!

The Lady and the Spider

by Faith McNulty

HarperCollins (1986)

Out of print

Available in Kindle edition


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."
