After moving to another state, seventh grader Bobby deals with the change by telling people at school made-up stories and then retreating into his world of pet spiders and books about spiders. This humorous story chronicles a boy's adjustment to new surroundings and kids in a new school.
Contains a spider bibliography.
"In a story every bit as engaging as Fletcher's Fig Pudding, . . a seventh grade arachnophile and his beloved tarantula take some time adjusting to a family move. . . . Creating and guiding a winning cast with a light, sure
hand, Fletcher puts a fine, fresh spin on a familiar premise." — Kirkus Reviews
