The Itsy Bitsy Spider
by Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley
This is not your grandmother’s spider!
Here is a gorgeous retelling of the classic tale of a spider climbing up the water spout. Using their unique collage artwork, the Emberleys’ vision breathes new life and brilliant color into this toddler favorite.
Heavy weight page stock and brightly colored illustrations of spider and sunshine make this title perfect for toddlers who will also enjoy the song that can be purchased and downloaded.
Praise for Rebecca and Ed Emberley;
“While maintaining the archetypes of the hardworking ant and laid-back grasshopper, the Emberleys transform Aesop’s fable about preparedness into a joyful celebration of community and music with a Cajun flair.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The Emberleys offer such a joyful, imaginative interpretation of the classic that even the youngest will understand the unstated message to ‘eat, drink and be merry.’”
Kirkus (starred review)
