Spider McDrew by Alan Durant
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Spider McDrew is a hopeless case - or so everyone says - but somehow he always manages to surprise everyone. Spider is slow and a dreamer, the sort of child who is always one step behind the rest of the class, but this doesn't mean he's stupid - far from it. Three gently humorous stories about this loveable character - his adventures at school. There'ss a football story, how he brings a cow into the playground for his pets project and how Spider stars in the school play. Bursting with character and originality, the author offers acutely perceptive snapshots of contemporary school life. Spider is a male version of Josie Smith, it could be said, though definitely rather more up to date!
