Squash the Spider
by Nick Ward 1769/837 first published 2003
Early Years for ages 2 to 6 published by David Fickling Books
Karen King's humble opinion
9/10 Very good. I am pleased with this.
What happens?
Squash the spider loves to jump out and frighten people. He sneaks into Billy's sandwich, the teacher's storybook, Jo's bag of crisps. Will he learn his lesson before he gets squashed?
Is it easy to read?
Its target audience is young children under six. I really enjoyed this book. It's fun to read, brightly illustrated and the spider is brilliant!
Anything else?
Nick Ward has written and illustrated many children's books, including Come on Baby Duck.
Who says so?
This review by Karen King.
The publisher reckons...
High up on the ceiling, Squash the Spider is waiting to pounce! He watches as Billy comes in the TV room and sits down to eat his supper... Boo! shouts Squash and makes Billy jump! Where will Squash turn up next? In Billy's sandwich? In the middle of his teacher's storybook? In someone's crisp packet? Squash the Spider is a hilarious picture book about a cheeky little spider who loves to make people jump. Will Billy and Squash finally make friends? Or will one of Squash's practical jokes end in disaster?
