Siy’s clearly written text...addresses spiders’ unique aspects, typical life cycles, and whether they’re poisonous to humans. Siy conveys scientific concepts and terminology very well, and her text is nicely complemented by Kunkel’s detailed, vivid...and digitally enhanced electron micrographs, all of which are accompanied by descriptive captions.
