SPIDERMANIA is winner!
SPIDERMANIA reviewed in the Huffington Post!
"Alexandra Siy's crystal clear, lyrical writing and Dennis Kunkel's microscopic details show spiders in all their magnificence."
Featuring abundant boldly colored visuals and a wealth of information, Siy and Kunkel offer a lively introduction to spiders. 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.
For their latest memorable venture into microscopic worlds, two veteran collaborators bring children face to face with the original "web masters."...An unusual approach to the creepiest of crawlies, likely to snare unwary passers-by in droves.
Devon's spider was big and hairy and scary (until we all became friends).
