The world's friendliest spiders take center stage in The Deadlies!

They're sweet and friendly...but they just happen to be super toxic. The Deadlies are the world's most misunderstood family of spiders. Kicked out of home after home, all the Deadlies want is to settle down in a cozy web with no exterminators around.

Now they've found the perfect place-the rare books room at the Boston Library. The librarian isn't afraid of the Deadlies, and they have lots of lovely books to explore. But their peace is threatened when a thief starts targeting the library. Can the Deadlies spin a web big enough to catch a crook-or is it back on the road once more?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Deadlies: Felix Takes the Stage"This nicely designed chapter book features appealing characters facing dangers with courage but searching for something more in their lives than either swashbuckling adventure or cozy domesticity." - Booklist"Humor and action seamlessly blend as these arachnids struggle for survival against the scary E-Men who threaten them with extermination. Vivid characters, from the theatrical godspider Fat Cat to the pompous orb weaver Oliphant Uxbridge, make up the clever supporting cast. Genuinely funny dialogue helps move the brief chapters along, and Gilpin's lively black-and-white drawings provide an animated accompaniment." - Kirkus Reviews
