Curse of the Spider King: The Berinfell Prophecies Series - Book One
Wayne Thomas Batson
Curse of the Spider King
Okay, you may look at this title and go, "Curse of the Spider King?! What's up with that! And eww... spiders, moving on to the next book." Or you could think it's one of the most awesome names ever! For me, I was one of those people who thought the name was a bit, well, strange. And I don't particularly like spiders so I wasn't so sure I wanted to read this book. Someone I know read it and said ...

The White Spider
Memories from my youth...
I spent the summer of 1977 as an American college student hosteling my way across Europe. I bought this book in a small bookstore in Grindelwald, Switzerland and then proceeded to enjoy a blissful couple of days sitting on the front balcony of the Grindelwald youth hostel, reading The White Spider, with the north face of the Eiger towering overhead. I would read from the book, and then gaze up ...
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Vol. 1: The World According to Peter Parker
Brian Michael Bendis
An interesting change
This book begins the first new chapter in the Ultimate franchise after the "Ultimatum" reset. I must say, was rather happy with the changes to the spider-man world. Didn't really care for the X-men changes, but I really felt they went into a new and interesting direction with this one. Well worth the read, especially if you've been following the Ultimate universe for awhile. If you're new to this ...
Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1)
I read both books in the series and I throughly enjoyed them both. I found Gin Blanco to be my type of protagonist. She is not perfect, but she is a sympathetic character. She is very down to earth. I also like the fact that even though the many of the character's have elemental powers, and consist of other beings such as giants, vampires, and dwarves, the author was able to create a world ...

The Itsy Bitsy Spider
BEST Itsy book ever!!
My daughter has thought that spiders were called "Itsy's" because of her love for the song since she was just months old. It was a no-brainer to buy the book & we were very pleasantly suprised at how great it is. There are many more verses to the age-old song and my daughter has always loved "finding" the spider on every page. That lil itsy sure gets into eveything!! Great book, please buy!!! you ...
Little Miss Spider
LITTLE MISS SPIDER is often requested when I volunteer to read with the children at my local library. They love the storyline and that the simple lines rhyme and are easy to recite. I've read other reviewers saying that they were uncomfortable with the aspect of the book that Little Miss Spider does not end up finding her birth mother by the end of the book. In the many times that I've read this ...
Miss Spider's Abc Book
Amazing Book- Your Child Will Love It!
This book is amazing! It is absolutely beautiful. The pages and drawings are breathtaking. My 2 year old son (just turned two) loves it and asks us to read it again and again. I think the letters are perfectly easy to read and he now knows most of his alphabet. He knew several letters before but after having this book for only a week, he has learned almost all his letters and can call them by ...
Condemnation (Forgotten Realms: R.A. Salvatore's War of the Spider Queen, Book 3)
Wizards of the Coast
Now we're getting somewhere
Disagreeing with most of the other reviewers here, IMO this is the best book of the series so far. Baker's straightforward writing style is a refreshing change that makes the book much quicker and easier to read. Additionally, the addition of Nimor Imphraezl and the Jaezred Chaulssin gives a whole new perspective to the story, making for more of an epic feel, something that was missing from the ...
The Spider and the Fly
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Don't Flatter Me
I am all for tradition refreshed... or an eclectic mix of styles. I loved Two Gentlemen from Verona set in the twenties, and now I'm fully convinced that the silent film era works wonderfully for morality tales as well. At least when attempted by Tony DiTerlizzi. The story is a classic, the illustrations are mesmerizing and memorable. I suppose if you want your children to remember a lesson, ...
Diary of a Spider
Wonderful with an Unexpected Result
I bought "Diary of a Spider" thinking that Doreen Cronin's books are always a big hit with my daughter. After all, she just loves, "Click, Clack, Moo!" and the others of that series. I thought getting this series could introduce her to the world of insects and "icky" things. Instead, I found something unexpected happened. My daughter was 5 when I first started reading "The Diary of a ...
