Cover: Spectacular Spiders

“A young girl admires the work of a garden spider living in her backyard and describes its physical and behavioral characteristics. Focusing on the arachnid’s use of spider silk, she tells how it constructs a web to catch insects, employs a ‘dragline’ to escape predators, and securely wraps its prey and its eggs in silk. A six-page appendix, in question-and-answer format, offers snippets of miscellaneous information about spider anatomy, habitats, natural enemies, lifespan, and special characteristics of 13 different species.” —School Library Journal
