Abstract:

The Spider's Song is a remarkable debut children's book, written by Simon Longstaff and illustrated by Dutch artist Marc Van de Griendt. Lose yourself in the enchanted world of The Boffin, who as a young science prodigy dared to compete with Mother Nature and create his very own perfect world. Years go by and the Boffin enjoys his solitude, inventing creatures most bizarre: ovelwoozers, worralots, midbits and phtphts, each more weird and wonderful then the next. That is until a clever spider and a curious girl venture into his world to teach him the most important lesson of all, one he won't find in any textbook or lab. With subtle messages woven throughout, The Spider's Song teaches adults and children alike the value of nature, acceptance, humanity and friendship.
