First words
Some days are flawless.
Our lives are defined in part by what books we read.
"Do what you can when you can. The world has too much rhetoric, too many misguided leaders and lunatics. What is needed are heroes like you — now more than ever — plain folk, without wings, who are able to step forward and do the right thing at the right time. Not the Extreme Right. There is no Right or Left in moving forward. And it usually takes two wings to fly. But you can get there with your feet on the ground."
"There are Bigs and there are Biggers. There are Littles and there are Littlers. Beware of Belittlers, who may be Bigs or Biggers but not always. They will try to make you feel smaller than you are.”

Book description
A Black Widow queen, a big bad Wolf Spider, and a Hit-Mantis are but a few of the obstacles for a spunky little spider who must find his way home through a strange land of giants in this witty fairytale fantasy for kids and adults.

Transported out of his element into a realm of dangers and foes, Spider is aided by the insects and arachnids he befriends, but only he can see the Fairy Fly. Is she real or imagined? This whimsical novel about finding oneself while feeling small in a big world takes a step back and several steps downward to peep at humanity from below. At the same time, the story is an allegory of the human condition: life and death matters, war and peace, our everyday struggles on a tiny scale. Part humorous, part philosophical, at times poetic . . . it celebrates a love for animals, books and words. View the planet from a different angle as you take a spiderwalk through the door to adventure.
