"This is a great book to reinforce the concepts of shapes or introduce arachnids. The illustrations are filled with serious-faced spiders and delightful nighttime backgrounds with glimpses of the nighttime sky. Enlarged fonts are sprinkled throughout the text, asking the question, 'What is that?' in response to each of Seaver’s creations. That inventive font is just right and, by itself, brings a smile to readers’ faces. VERDICT This sweet book is an excellent choice for children’s collections."
"Using repetition and understated humor, Czajak (the Monster and Me series) reveals that Seaver's innovations are about more than just artistic expression—they also get results. ... It's a stylish and clever ode to the value of trying new things."
"An artistic arachnid named Seaver uses his spidey senses to spin webs inspired by the stars, but his brothers and sisters are less than impressed with his unusual creations. Author Paul Czajak has woven a tale that not only teaches tots about basic shapes but also reminds us all to embrace our differences."
