Summary
A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year: A "fascinating" photo-filled book on these amazing arachnids! ( Booklist ) Yellow blood? Skeletons on the outside? These attributes don't belong to comic book characters or alien life forms, but to Earth's biggest and hairiest spiders: tarantulas. In this book you are invited to follow Sam Marshall, spider scientist extraordinaire (he's never been bitten), as he explores the dense rain forest of French Guiana, knocking on the doors of tarantula burrows, trying to get a closer look at these incredible creatures. You'll also visit the largest comparative spider laboratory in America—where close to five hundred live tarantulas sit in towers of stacked shoeboxes and plastic containers, waiting for their turn to dazzle and astound the scientists who study them. "Superb color photos abound in this spectacular series addition...This is a vivid look at an enthusiastic scientist energetically and happily at work...A treat, even for arachnophobes."— School Library Journal (starred review) A Sibert Honor Book An ALA Notable Book A John Burroughs Nature Book for Young Readers A Kirkus Reviews Editors Choice
