Spiders have always had a hard life.  Few appreciate their hard work or their artistry: so much to accomplish in such a brief life.  Sophie would be so pleased if you would come into her book so she could show you the challenges she faced in her life and what she did along the way.  Artists need praise and encouragement, so a compliment would not be out of line!  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
SUBJECTS:     Spiders -- Fiction.
                        Boardinghouses -- Fiction.
