Publisher's Description

A special 10th Anniversary Edition of an illustrated classic that won the Caldecott Honor. Includes a collectible poster showcasing original art.

“Will you walk into my parlor,” said the Spider to the Fly....
This enduring verse from Mary Howitt dates back to the nineteenth century, but its warning—to beware the wiles of flattery—remains as relevant as ever. Celebrated artist Tony DiTerlizzi, drawing inspiration from his love of classic Hollywood horror movies of the 1920s and 1930s, shines a cinematic spotlight on a quintessential cautionary tale.
In commemoration of its tenth year, this revitalized edition showcases both the Caldecott sticker and a custom anniversary sticker as well as a brand-new jacket, features an author’s note and new art, and includes a four-color poster.

Author Bio

Mary Howitt was born in Gloucestershire, England, in 1799. With her husband, William Howitt, she wrote more than 180 books, including the poem The Spider and the Fly: An Apologue: A New Version of an Old Story, which first appeared in The New Year’s Gift. Tony DiTerlizzi is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator who has been creating books with Simon & Schuster for fifteen years. From his fanciful picture books like Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, Adventure of Meno (with his wife, Angela), and The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and The Search for WondLa, Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in more than thirty countries.
