The Spider's Song is a remarkable new children's picture book, written by Dr. Simon Longstaff and illustrated by Dutch artist Marc Van de Griendt.
The Spider's Song follows the story of The Boffin, a young scientist who dares to compete with Mother Nature and build his own perfect world. Believing in his exceptional brain and grandiose abilities, the Boffin, retreats into an enchanted world of worralot's, midbit's, PhtPht's and nuffin grass, weird and wonderful creatures all of his very own creation.
That is until one common little spider ventures into his world and teaches The Boffin the most important lesson of all, one he can't learn in any textbook.
With subtle messages woven throughout, The Spider's Song teaches children the value of self-confidence, needs, wants and desires, loneliness, connectedness, humanity and love.
