3 out of 5 stars

First off, this is purely a fictional story featuring orb weaver spiders as the main characters. It is not meant to teach data or facts about them.

This book has a very positive theme — being unique and true to yourself will lead to success in life. Seaver is an orb weaver who is inspired by the shapes he sees in the stars at night. A very poetic and beautiful image. The webs he weaves are not in the typical circular shape, but feature many different angles and shapes. At first this frustrates the other spiders, but then they come to appreciate Seaver’s uniqueness.
