For those of you who are familiar with the original Little Miss Spider (a book I can still recite verbatim), you will understand how addictive David Kirks and quirky rhymes can be.
Kirk has a wonderful knack for writing books for very young children that also get the toes of adults curling with glee.
While Im not an enormous fan of computer-generated illustrations, Kirk takes his high tech pictures to a whole new level of class and glamour using the most exquisite colour and quirky characters that walk a fine line between cute and a little frightening. This style is so reminiscent of the work of early illustrators of childrens book and lend such personality and drama to his books.
Kirks play on alliteration charms the tongue fireflies fandango, ladybugs laugh, moths mingle. Kids will love listening to mum and dad curling their tongue around each letter.Miss Spiders
