In West Africa, children love to listen to stories about Spider. He is a clever and crafty character. He loves to eat and he hates to work, and he plays tricks that get him into trouble. But he tries to be good as much as he can, and he is always lots of fun! Spider stars in three short tales in this collaboration between Joyce Cooper Arkhurst and Caldecott-winning artist Jerry Pinkney, now abridged and redesigned for early readers (Passport to Reading, Level 4). Look for three more tales in The Further Adventures of Spider.
