From hating science, but loving animals, to being the scientist in charge of a very unusual animal laboratory – what could have caused a change like that? Blame a fascination with hairy, eight-legged creatures with fangs. Learn more about this ancient form of spiders and why Sam Marshall loves them. Follow along as Sam tracks tarantulas in jungle habitats and coaxes them to display their secrets. Tarantulas turned Sam’s life around and now, in addition to his own research, Sam encourages others to uncover nature’s mysteries and make discoveries about our world and the creatures in it.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
