The Lovereading4Kids comment

Walter the spider is determined to make a perfect web, just like his friends. At first his webs are too wibbly-wobbly and the wind whooshes them away, so he experiments with different shapes – triangles, squares, rectangles – but they all blow away too until at last, late at night, he makes a truly wonderful web. With his long legs and big eyes Walter is a wonderfully expressive and his efforts will teach children just as much about the importance of perseverance as they will about shapes. Tim Hopgood’s artwork is bright and bold with an appealing retro feel and this brings to mind that other insect superstar the Very Hungry Caterpillar. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Tim Hopgood

Tim Hopgood lives with his wife, children and cats in North Yorkshire. He is a graduate of Kingston University and worked for twenty years in graphic design and freelance illustration. Tim’s first book, Our Big Blue Sofa, was published by Macmillan in 2006 and he has gone on to publish a number of successful picture books including Tip Tap went the Crab and WOW said the Owl.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Bubbling with energy, prize winning Tim Hopgood’s illustrations are also full of warmth. The enchanting owl, waking up as night falls, gives a beautiful introduction to colours in Wow! Said the Owl while a chirpy crab with very big eyes tip taps as it counts its way around the seashore in Tip Tap went the Crab. A Dog Called Rod is a wonderful fantasy about owning a dog even though dad says dogs are noisy, messy and expensive! Full of life as the pages shimmer, Here Comes Frankie is also full of noise as Frankie’s life is transformed when he starts to play the trumpet. There’s lots of noise and energy too as the gloriously strokable sofa takes off on an unusual adventure in Our Big Blue Sofa.
