What's Spinderella About

Publisher Summary

A fantastic new picture book all about a football-playing spider, written by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, with glorious full colour illustrations from the talented Sebastian Braun and a sparkling, glittery foiled cover. Spinderella the spider has a passion for football! She tries to play a match with her brothers and sisters but she doesn’t know how many spiders should be on each team. Even worse, she can’t count the goals! Luckily for Spinderella, her Hairy Godmother has a plan . . . Julia Donaldson does it again in this hugely engaging and funny story all about football, spiders and counting - what’s not to love! The perfect picture book for children of all ages - boys and girls alike. Julia Donaldson is the internationally renowned author of the best-loved picture books in the world, including The Gruffalo, What the Ladybird Heard, Sugarlump and the Unicorn and Night Monkey, Day Monkey. Julia Donaldson’s collaborations with Axel Scheffler have sold millions of copies, and Room on the Broom is now an Academy Award-nominated short film. Sebastian Braun studied fine and applied arts at Strasbourg University. He moved to London in 2000 and since then has been working exclusively on children’s picture books, having been published by Orchard, Walker, Campbell, HarperCollins and Puffin.

3.5 / 7.0

This is only very VERY loosely a Cinderella story… it’s a counting story about spiders that happens to have a Hairy Godmother in it, which felt misleading and quite random.
