The Eensy-Weensy Spider
Little, Brown & Co., 2000.
Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott.
The beloved childhood song is extended here into a complete story
that takes the determined little spider on a series of adventures
throughout the countryside. After a busy day she is tucked into
bed, only to wake to another turn at the waterspout. As conceived
by Westcott in her bright, double-spread illustrations, no spider
has ever been so endearing.
Look inside the
Hoberman's jaunty rhymes perfectly match the meter of the original
song, and virtually compel the reader to break out in song. It's
wonderful to see how Hoberman can stretch a well-known song into
a new shape."
Scripps Howard News Service
The author-illustrator team behind Miss Mary Mack scores again
with this rollicking, sing-song poem that extends Eensy-Weensy's
story beyond the drain pipe and through a spring day of adventures."
"This sprightly adaptation lends itself to singing aloud and
is sure to be a hit."
