Kathryn Lasky - Felix Takes the Stage

The Deadlies

Felix Takes the Stage

Author: Kathryn Lasky; Illustrator: Stephen Gilpin

  • AGES 8 - 10 
  • Genre Comedy and Humor
Bestselling author Kathryn Lasky now has a series for younger readers! The Deadlies are like any other family with a loving mother and bright, rambunctious children. Except they're spiders. Really, really poisonous ones. But Edith and her children are kind and cultured. In fact, the Deadlies had been happily living in a Boston symphony hall until Edith's son, Felix, had a . . . misunderstanding with the maestro. Now they have to outwit the overzealous arachnologists and evil exterminators as they hunt for a new home. Will they ever find a place to live in peace?
"Humor and action seamlessly blend as these arachnids struggle for survival,,,Vivid characters 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...a successfully spun tale." — Kirkus Reviews
