Golbo is a spider who wants only to find a quiet place to live. He lost his uncle (to a vaccum) and more recently his best friend Spotnot (to a bird). Unfortunately, the human who owns the house doesn't like spiders. At. All. When Golbo falls victim to her vacuum, her is reunited with Spotnot and their adventure together begins.
Cute characters and wonderfully imaginative events make this a fun adventure to share.
The illustrations show the spiders with six legs.
It is hard not to love Golbo and Spognot, the blue and pink spiders. The pages are a little text-heavy for new readers, but the illustrations will entertain young listeners.
This fantasy adventure follows the lives of two spiders.
Re-purposing stuff stands out as something that kids will find fun. Tap into that imagination ... if you were building a house for Golbo (or the fairies in your backyard), what would you put in it? There are also themes of perseverance and acceptance that can be drawn out when sharing with older readers.
