About the Author:

Darlyne A. Murawski is a biologist, writer, and award-winning nature photographer who is a regular contributor to National Geographic magazine. She has a Ph.D. in botany from the University of Texas and has done post-doctoral research at Harvard and the University of Georgia. She has a master of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2001 Murawski won the Award of Excellence from Communication Arts for her photography and has twice been the finalist in the Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards for Magazine Photography. Born in Chircao, she currently lives in Arlington, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–Outstanding color photographs capture the natural beauty of spider webs in this unique volume. A preface discusses a few major characteristics shared by all spiders and some special characteristics of web builders, followed by profiles of nine different species. Each one is introduced on a page of large-print text and illustrated with a sharp photo and a fact panel listing the scientific name, average size, habitat, prey, etc. The main text briefly describes some key physical and behavioral characteristics of the featured species, how its web functions, and the consistency of the spider silk threads used. The concluding sections describe five additional uses of spider silk, give directions for making webs visible outdoors, and relate some of the author's experiences in putting the book together. A lucid glossary of terms, some of which are not mentioned in the text, and a short list of books, magazines, and Web sites are appended. While the text is clearly written and well organized, it is the photography that stands out here. With its marvelous pictures, clear text, and fresh approach to a popular topic, this title will be a good companion volume to Sandra Markle's Outside and Inside Spiders (S & S, 1994) and Seymour Simon's Spiders (HarperCollins, 2003).–Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
