A 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.

Lydia Monks gained a First Class degree in illustration from Kingston University, and has gone on to become one of the best-loved illustrators of today. Her first picture book title, I Wish I Were a Dog won the Smarties Bronze Award in 1999. Since then, her many picture books include My Cat's Weird (Egmont), the Princess Mirror-Belle stories by Julia Donaldson, Esmeralda by Karen Wallace and The Skipping-Rope Snake and Queen Munch and Queen Nibble by Carol Ann Duffy (all Macmillan), and, published April 2004, Aaaarrgghh, Spider!, which has already had enormous success, going into 8 co-editions, with an initial print-run of 55,000 copies. Lydia lives in Sheffield with her illustrator husband Frazer and her daughter.
Monk's cartoonish illustrations are lively and offer some genuinely funny moments.
