Who's afraid of spiders? NOT SAM WU! In this fourth book in the hilarious series, Sam must conquer his fears and help save the school pet tarantula. Sam Wu is NOT afraid of anything. Well, maybe some things--like ghosts, sharks . . . and the dark's pretty scary, too. And now he has something new to worry about: Tulip, the big, hairy pet tarantula that lives in the sixth-grade science lab and is coming to visit his class. But Sam can't let anyone know. So when Tulip disappears from her cage, Sam decides it's up to him and his friends to step up, save the school from the eight-legged escapee . . . and prove, once again, that he's no scaredy cat!

Review quote

Praise for Sam Wu Is Not Afraid of Ghosts

"Reluctant readers and fans of the Wimpy Kid series and its ilk will appreciate the book's dynamic type, graphics galore, cartoonish illustrations, and ironic footnotes. . . . will resonate with anyone who has ever felt different." --Kirkus

"When Sam soaks his sheets in pickle juice or constructs a special ghost trap, readers are sure to be delighted, but adult readers will see his true act of courage occurs when his friends come to his house for the first time. Amid worries about what Zoe and Bernard will think of the food his mother serves for dinner, Sam stands up for his favorite Cantonese dishes, and his friends enjoy them. It's a nice bit of cultural reflection that isn't seen often in literature for this age group; many readers will appreciate it. VERDICT Fans of Alvin Ho and Hank Zipzer will laugh out loud at Sam's zany -capers." --School Library Journal
