Booklist Review

Ages 3-6. This new twist on a favorite preschool tale will be a smash hit at story hour. After reciting the usual first verse, Trapani continues the spider's climbing adven~tures: she climbs up a kitchen wall, and is blown off by a fan; up a yellow pail, and is flicked off by a mouse's tail; up a rocking chair, and is sent flying by a pouncing cat; up a maple tree, and slips on dew and lands in a leaf. Finally the spider climbs up a tree, stops, and spins a lovely web. The sing-song cadence of the extend~ed rhyme works perfectly, and the colorful, if unso~phisticat~ed, artwork matches the comfortable text. The gray spider, with two dots for eyes and a line for a mouth, seems right at home with the tale's other plump creatures. A clever person could easily create finger plays for the new verses. Music and lyrics for all six verses are appended. ~--Deborah Abbott
