An Interview with Harry the Tarantula (HC)

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-Complete with quirky illustrations, this spoof of a radio talk-show interview is a clever method of revealing facts about tarantulas. Harry Spyder appears as a guest on Katy Did's program, "Up Close and Personal." Prodded along by her questions, the tarantula describes his frightening encounter with a girl who scooped him up into an empty glass jar. He was so threatened by her presence that he leaned back on his hind legs, opened his fangs, and rubbed off a few of his hairs to fling at her. Eventually, Harry was released in her backyard where he met several female tarantulas that were ready to accept his romantic intentions. Throughout the interview, Harry reveals much about himself and his lifestyle, including his favorite foods, whether his bite is poisonous or not, and why he sheds his skin. Drescher's scratchy cartoon drawings add life and a touch of comedy to the story. Harry's expressive face, with its eight eyes and mouth full of teeth, is never scary or terrifying. Additional facts about tarantulas are included. An imaginative, engaging, and instructive book.
