Product description

Poor Spider really wants to be a family pet. But the family he lives with are terrified of him. Whenever he tries to show them what a great pet he would make, they simply cry, “Aaaarrgghh, Spider!”. Exploring themes of tolerance and misunderstanding, this quirky, comical picture book has a thought-provoking message and an enormous heart.
