An illustrated version of the well-known poem about a wily spider who preys on the vanity and innocence of a little fly. Through the story of a Fly that allows a Spider to flatter her, children learn the important lesson of not listening to people who hide their true intentions behind sweet words. This book, illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi, is a Caldecott Honor Book.
Breathing new life into Mary Howitt's 175-year-old warning, DiTerlizzi draws inspiration from classic black-and-white Hollywood movies like "Frankenstein" and "The Mummy" and fills dazzling silver-tinted illustrations in this monstrously entertaining picture book with a dose of humor big enough to quell even the faintest of hearts.
