Spyder

Publisher: Scholastic

Spyder is a spunky secret agent who lives in Tom’s loft. Everyone is excited about Tom’s birthday but Spyder (Agent 008) learns that Tom’s cake is under threat from a bothersome bluebottle. Flying solo, Spyder must draw on her skill and ingenuity to make sure the bug does not ruin Tom’s special cake.

Good on Matt Carr for creating a fantastic role model for all little girls! This secret agent does not let her small size get in the way of her success and is not dressed in stereotypical pink clothing. Spyder is a fierce but likeable female character that both children and adults will admire.

Children will love poring over the lists, phone messages and addendums, which keep the pace of the story fast and exciting. There are also plenty of puns to keep families chuckling away as they share this book with their children.
