    DescriptionA rip-roaring read-aloud (shout-aloud) picture book about a spider who wants to be the family pet from the internationally acclaimed illustrator of Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard. Spider wants to be a family pet. But the family whose house he lives in are terrified of him. Whenever he tries to show them what a great pet he would make, they simply cry: "AAAARRGGHH, Spider!" The illustrator of Julia Donaldson's famous titles such as The Singing Mermaid and The Rhyming Rabbit proves she is an author in her own right with this best-selling picture book story.

    Review quote
    Monk's cartoonish illustrations are lively and offer some genuinely funny moments.
