    " A book about a spider who wants to be a pet? This story was written for Kalyn (my daughter, who wants to keep every bug she finds as a pet, including spiders). It's cute, funny, and enjoyable whether you like spiders or not. Plus, what kid doesn't like to hear their mom yell, "Aaaaaargh!" Five stars! "

    " Very cute, very paticipatory story about a spider that desperately wants to be a family pet. The kids really enjoyed it during storyhour. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 2/16/2014

    " Told from a spider's perspective. Great for fall season. Has a glittery surprise that my library kids & Carmen really enjoy! "

    " Fun read aloud! Kids loved the predictability, even though most squashed spiders when they see one. (Me? I scream! Then squish.) The kids and I LOVED the ending. Read to find out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/7/2014

    " This book was really cute and fun to read with our 5-year-old daughter. She is having trouble with spiders lately and this book was a cute way to show her that we don't have to be scared of them. Follows a spider that wants to be "part of the family" with a house of humans and all the ways that the spider acts to show them it should be their pet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 2/4/2014

    " From the opening spread, which seems to be upside-down until you realize it's written from the point of view of a spider, you can tell this is going to be a fun book. The spider in question just desperately wants to be a family pet, and tries everything to belong, but keeps frightening the family and getting tossed out the door. Finally, the spider just does what spiders do best and ends up being accepted for who she is. All ends happily for the spider. As for the family...well, just wait for the twist at the end. "

    " Very cute book - spider wants to be a family pet. Wait until you see the last page! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyce Dougan | 1/21/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. Children will absolutely love the brightly colored pictures and will find it humorous. The spider in the story only wants to be a house pet, but every time he shows them why he can be they scream. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille White | 1/14/2014

    " No one wants to be friends with a spider! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giegie | 12/30/2013

    " ahaha cute story and scary about spider aaahhhh!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 12/24/2013

    " This book always makes the adults AND the kids laugh. The repeating phrase "aaaarrgghh, spider!" works best when screeched in a high-pitch voice. There's a funny surprise ending too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristina | 12/22/2013

    " Totally fun. Can see how could get a storytime audience involved in this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 12/13/2013

    " The page where the family is upside down because you are seeing it from the spider's point of view is really cute. We also enjoy the page with the glittery spiderwebs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/8/2013

    " Great storytime read-aloud about a spider who hopes to be one family's pet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 12/1/2013

    " This is a great storytime book - you have to practice saying, "Aaaarrgghh! Spider!" before reading, and with the group if they're going to join in. The spelling of "Aaaarrgghh" makes it difficult to look it up in a catalog, so remember the author's name. "

    " Another cute book, it's all about a spider that wants to be a family pet. My bug-enamoured little girl enjoyed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Warnie B. | 8/29/2012

    " This one is really fun--entertaining for kids and adults alike. Great illustrations too! It's also a good one for reading aloud in group story times--kids generally find the constant shrieks of, "Aaaargghh! Spider!" pretty hilarious. Bravo! "
