Miss Spider's Tea Party (Scholastic Bookshelf) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The modern classic about a sweet spider and her friends is now available for the first time in a Scholastic Bookshelf paperback version

"Miss Spider can't understand why insects flee in panic at her approach. Being a florivore herself, she only wants to invite them over for cakes and tea. The ironic air wafting through Kirk's rhymed tale will not be lost on young readers, and the insects in the big, brightly colored illustrations beear comically apprehensive expressions as they hastily depart . . . At last, Miss Spider is able to convince a rain-soaked moth of her good intentions . . . A sweet tale" --School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Miss Spider is hosting a tea party, but what's a sociable spider to do when no one will accept her invitations? Readers of all ages will cheer for Miss Spider in this engaging tale now available in paperback. Full color.
