This latest installment in the popular Strange and Wonderful series introduces readers to spider species from all over the world—from the common garden spider to the elusive black widow. Pringle’s comprehensive, lively, and informative text includes an overview of the many thousands of species in the world and describes spiders’ habitats, physiology, mating habits, web-making, what and how they eat, and how they protect themselves from predators.

(T)his guide to spiders has something for everyone. Pringle addresses the common fear of these creatures...offering the reassuring viewpoint that people who take an interest in spiders will find them more fascinating than frightening.... precise, detailed pictures of spiders illustrate the text with precision. One of the most interesting and informative books in Pringle and Henderson's consistently fine Strange and Wonderful series, here's an excellent choice for science collections.' -Booklist
