This imaginative adaptation of the popular children's song was first published in hardcover in 2000. It has finally stopped raining and the eensy-weensy spider leaps off the water spout and out into the neighborhood. Along the way, she has funny adventures with everyone from a beetle, to a frog, and even a glowworm who lights her way home at the end of the day. The humorous pictures are full of clever details.
"The author-illustrator team behind Miss Mary Mack scores again with this rollicking, singsong poem."
"This sprightly adaptation lends itself to singing aloud and is sure to be a hit."
