    What a fun adventure with a unique family of crime fighting spiders Who would have thought that spiders could be so cool Certainly not me, but if this family of spiders lived in my house I d definitely keep them around Not only do they protect the Boston Public Library s collection of books from those pesky silverfish who eat through pages and the collectable paintings, but together they stop thieves who keep stealing pictures out of books Not only did I like the library setting, but I liked the [...]

    My son loved the gross stuff and there were bits that were funny but I think we finally found a book outside under his range in the kids section Gotta start looking in the teen section I guess.

    Jake s Review Sorry Mom, really didn t like this one I think its for younger kids and for girls Way too much history and boring book stuff you will probably like it though I did like the pictures throughout the book and some of the gross spider stuff was fun, but that was it This is one that you can give away to someone else, I don t wanna keep it.Jake s Rating 4 10Mom s Review Adorable story for the middle school reader in the 7 9 range Its set in a library so you can see the appeal for me, bu [...]

    The Deadlies are living in a near place at the Boston Public Library Their human friend, Tom, is the person in charge of the rare book collection The Deadlies are welcomed to eat all the bugs that damage the rare books A new spider, Buster, is introduced Two people are cutting up the rare books and its up to the Deadlies to help put a stop to it I enjoyed it and the illustrations were well done.

    The Deadlies are a spider family that live in the Boston Public Library in the rare book room They are happy there and help keep bug eating insects away from the valuable books But they discover that a husband and wife are stealing illustrations from some of the books and they have to find a way to alert the librarian to what is happening This was a fun book and the illustrations are really nice too.

    Very cute story for younger readers about 4th, 5th grade The Deadlies is a family of brown recluse spiders, now residing in the Boston Public Library s Rare Books room This is a quick read, with many black and white illustrations showing spiders with hair and hands The author does include a disclaimer at the end of the book, admonishing readers not to touch real brown recluse spiders.


    Hoover Public Library Kids and Teens

    Only Lasky author of Guardian of Ga Hoole series could make brown recluse spiders seem delightful Perfect mystery for reluctant readers, not to mention a great one for parents and teachers and even librarians to read aloud to all elementary grades.


    Susie

    Some clever ideas, but didn t inspire me as much as Lasky s stories about wolves At times a little confusing Students would learn some things about spiders.
