Mr B's review

Become a spider warrior not a worrier with the help of Milton, the eight-legged hero of this hilarious story. Along with friends hairy Ralph and daddy long legs Audrey, can Milton save the spidery gang from pest control with the help of his house-girl Zoe and her arachnophobic dad? Funny, warm-hearted and equally loved by boys and girls, this has been a big hit in the B family.


An engaging tale of fighting the impossible and transforming
from a spider worrier to a SPIDER WARRIOR!
‘The story is so engagingly told and Milton is such a loveable

‘Written with an engaging pace and a heartwarming sense of
humour that is sure to appeal’ BOOKS FOR TOPICS

‘Milton and his web-spinning sidekicks are as fearless and
charismatic a crew of characters as any others you might come across
in children’s fiction’ THE IRISH TIMES

When little spider Milton discovers he’s been branded deadly
on social media – and is targeted by pest-killers BugKILL
– he fears for his life and the future of his species.

Alongside his BFFs, big hairy Ralph and spindly daddy-long-legs
Audrey, he searches for a way to clear his name …

But to succeed, Milton realises he must communicate with his house
humans, a schoolgirl called Zoe – and her arachnophobic
dad … Is he mighty enough to achieve the impossible?

The first book in a fresh, funny new series for children
aged seven and up!

Quirky illustrations by the brilliant Alex G Griffiths.

Explores themes of phobia, social media and bravery as
Milton – a little spider with a big heart – strives
to clear his name by befriending his house-human, Zoe.
