Summary

A determined little spider named Walter is trying to make a sturdy web that will stand up to the blustery wind. The webs he makes at first are woven in special shapes--a triangle, a square, a circle--but they are still wibbly-wobbly. Can Walter make a web that is both wonderful and strong?

This simple, vibrant adventure is a lively companion to our two previous Tim Hopgood "first books": Wow! Said the Owl, about colors; and Hooray for Hoppy! , about the five senses.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Walter the spider's efforts to spin a web that can withstand breezes offer a relaxed look at five basic shapes, including triangles, squares, and circles. Hopgood's brightly colored illustrations depict expressive Walter, a range of natural settings in which he attempts to succeed in his web weaving, and the delicate lines of each ensuing web. The simple text is set in a clear, large font and includes onomatopoeia as well as easy-to-read rhythms. Walter solves his problem in a dazzling manner before the final page spread, which offers readers a chance to review and discuss the most basic attributes of the shapes he attempted to use. Hopgood's mix of bright colors and a round, scribbly Walter rendered in black contrast nicely with the spider's powder-blue silken threads. More specifically trained on the basics of geometry than Dana Meachen Rau's A Star in My Orange (2002) and with more storytelling than Lauren Coss' Let's Sort Shapes (2014), this will have an easy place in toddler and kindergarten storytimes.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a lighthearted introduction to five basic shapes, a big-eyed spider named Walter attempts to build a web that will withstand the gusting wind. Walter's initial attempts, which include triangular, square, and diamond-shaped webs, aren't up to the task, and even a strong-looking circular web gets blown away. Eventually, Walter weaves an enormous web that incorporates all of the shapes-a "truly wonderful web" that gleams in the moonlight. Hopgood doesn't really get into why Walter's final web is strong enough to get the job done (if anything, the implication is that size, not shape, is what matters), but the story still offers opportunities for adults to discuss shapes-and the habits of spiders-with young readers.
