"The Monster Under My Web" By Charlene Gresham is a well-illustrated, colorful children's story about Annabel a spider who lives a corner of the ceiling in little Jimmy's bedroom.
Annabel is always dressed in her pink ballet slippers and pink tutu and is very happy until the day comes when Jimmy receives a present that frightens Annabel and she doesn't know what to do about the present.
She descends from her web one night to face the cause of her fears and learns a valuable lesson: that taking a closer look at the things that frightens you might just make you see them in a new and less-scary way.
I found the short story charming and especially loved the stories' rhymes as I'm certain a child would too.
Lovely and interesting.
Would I recommend this book to others? YES!
