Spider is a clever little trickster. No matter where he is, he seems to get into trouble! But he always learns a good lesson in the end. Spider stars in three short tales called "How the World Got Wisdom", "Why Spiders Live in Dark Corners", and "How Spider Helped a Fisherman" 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 inThe First Adventures of Spider.
