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
