DREAM WEAVER

Through the eyes of a curious child, readers observe the behavior of a single yellow spider and his world in a lyrical bedtime story. London's text is gentle and peaceful, chronicling the actions of the spider as his world becomes the child's. The paintings offer a spider's-eye view of a giant snail, deep pools of water droplets, and danger as hikers crash through the woods. At bedtime, the spider weaves his web, calm as a starry night. Baviera's illustrations perfectly convey the poetic tone and tilt of the text, yanking readers right into the tiny milieu. Fascinating and fun spider facts cap off a rare effort where engaging text, distinct illustrations, and smart design jibe perfectly.
