Continually in print since its original publication in 1964, The Adventures of Spider is a favorite collaboration between Joyce Cooper Arkhurst and Caldecott-winning artist Jerry Pinkney that showcases Pinkney's playful, stylized early work as a children's book illustrator. Now abridged and divided into two separate volumes (The First Adventures of Spider and The Further Adventures of Spider) this second volume includes three more abridged stories from the original work: "How the World Got Wisdom", "Why Spiders Live in Dark Corners", and "How Spider Helped a Fisherman". The stories are just right for Passport to Reading Level 4 early readers who want more stories about Spider, the witty, mischievous, and clever hero of West African folklore.
