The Lovereading comment:
Brand-new Early Reader edition of Francesca Simon's Spider School with new full-colour illustrations from Tony Ross. It's a funny and original story from the Horrid Henry team.
There are lots of Early Reader titles to choose from that are great for sharing with your youngsters and for kids just starting out on the reading journey to read alone. Check out the extracts on the site as some of the titles are slightly more advanced than others - for example the Francesca Simon animal story titles set at Potters Barn are great to get started on whereas the Sally Gardner, Georgie Adams and Vivian French titles have a bit more text to each page. Each and every one of them though has full colour illustrations on every page.

Something is very wrong Francesca Simon brings every child's worst nightmare to life in this funny, original story brought to life with Tony Ross's inimitable illustrations.
'If you've got a child on the verge of going to school, Francesca Simon's Spider School is a must read' Michael Rosen
