Synopsis

Aaaarrgghh, Spider! Book & Plush Set Aaaarrgghh, Spider! Plush Set by Lydia Monks

This beautiful gift box set includes the picture book and true-to-character plush toy of Spider. A rip-roaring read-aloud (shout-aloud) picture book about a spider who wants to be the family pet from the internationally acclaimed illustrator of Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard. Spider wants to be a family pet. But the family whose house she lives in are terrified of her. Whenever she tries to show them what a great pet she would make, they simply cry: AAAARRGGHH, Spider! The fun plush toy can be used separately or along with the book. This story is perfect for story-led play, children can re-enact the charcter's adventures.
