Wombat Books, 2015. ISBN 9781925139334
Spider Iggy is a sociable little spider, but he is finding it very difficult to attract anyone to share his friendship. No-one even notices his magnificent, cleverly spun web designs. He dreams of being with spiders just like himself, but how can he make it happen?
Setting off alone, he is confronted by UNfriendly insects and birds and even threatening people, who only try to harm him.
Poor Iggy! He will just have to stick up for himself if he is ever to find a home where he can be truly happy.
'Hi-ho! What's the go?' Iggy eventually finds himself amongst lots of spiders, just as likeable as himself.
Superbly illustrated, this brightly coloured, delightful book should become a special favourite for younger readers, and those who relish a happy ending.
J. Kerr-Smith
