From New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book artist Isabelle Simler, a picture book (and nature guide!) to linger over. In nature, there is much to see. Look closely as a spider -- both a collector and an artist -- skillfully crafts a masterpiece from all that falls into her path. Patient and observant, she appreciates all the wonders that make up her landscape -- from ferns and feathers to bugs and butterflies. Readers will come back again and again to the luscious and intricate illustrations, soaking up all of Simler's delicate details.

  • 48 pages.
  • Picture book measures 12'' wide x 8-5/8'' high.
  • Full color throughout.
  • Sturdy hardcover binding with dust jacket.

Isabelle Simler graduated from the Graduate School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, France. She is the author and illustrator of several children?s picture books, including Plume, which was selected by the New York Times as one of the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2017. She lives and works in Paris.


''Lovely, soft-hued, textured illustrations offer elaborate details of insects, leaves, seeds, feathers and pebbles, placed over a white background for maximum effect . . . Here is an easily accessible introduction to nature for young children -- and a lovely homage to a creature often met with fear.''

''For preschool and early elementary school children, this is a glorious invitation to observe the natural world.''

''Visually stunning.''

''Readers will surely admire the 'delicate masterpiece' created by both the storyteller and her subject.''
