Reviews

This book helps young readers understand homelessness as well as appreciate compassion for the less fortunate.

-- "Winnipeg Free Press"

However this story is interpreted--as a tale of teamwork, unexpected friendship, or just plain silliness--viewers are in for a good time.

-- "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

Heartwarming and amusing, When Spider Met Shrew offers a lot for young readers; it has a great moral, can help children build inferring skills, and is full of dialogue. ... While grownups will read When Spider Met Shrew with a nostalgic, cozy feeling, younger readers will find a beautiful lesson that they can bring with them and use in their own little communities.

-- "Cloud Lake Literary"

Wholesome and heartfelt read.

-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"
