The Weaver

Publisher: Andersen Press

Stanley the spider is an imaginative creature who loves collecting things to incorporate into his beautifully woven web: from leaves and seeds to found objects he doesn’t even know the name of. However, when the rain destroys his marvellous creation, the little spider is crestfallen. How can he hold onto the things that are most precious to him?

From a glittering silver web on the front cover to crisp, clean images throughout, the illustrations are full of warmth and expression, and are a perfect accompaniment to the thoughtful text. This stunning debut from an exciting new talent in the children’s book world skilfully depicts the fleeting character of the natural world, and is sure to captivate young readers with an interest in wildlife and creativity.
