Written by Jen Banyard and illustrated by Tracey Gibbs
Connor’s little white lies have spawned a monster! It’s big, it’s hairy and it’s lurking outside his bedroom window.
Connor is home alone with his pet spider. Tricking Mum and Dad was easy and now he’s got nobody to tell him to wash the dishes, nobody to make him go to school and nobody to turn to when his very existence is threatened by the biggest arachnid the world has ever seen.
Can Connor save the planet? With just a bungling knitwit from NASA, the weirdest girl in school and a doddery old lady and her wheezing terrier to help him, Connor thinks the world is doomed!
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘I really enjoyed this story. It’s so well written, suspenseful and splattered with classroom humour. But beware, if you are arachnophobic it may give you nightmares!’ Good Reading
