Join Speckle the spider as he tap-dances his way to fame — with maps, flaps, and other novelty surprises throughout. (Ages 3-6)
Speckle is sure he's a special kind of spider — so special and talented that he should be better appreciated than he is at home in the Bahamas. So off he sets on an adventure in search of fame and recognition, and after some run-ins with giants of various species, finally finds himself on public display. The ambitious Speckle is certainly getting lots of attention, but it's not quite what he had in mind! With fun, energetic illustrations and plenty of interactive features — including "fan mail," memorabilia, and a mini book of spider facts — this engaging tale of "be careful what you wish for" is certain to charm even the arachnophobes among us.
