Book ReviewsMegan PeronaComment

Sophie’s Masterpiece by Eileen Spinelli, illustrations by Jane Dyer

Sophie is an unusually talented house spider, but when she ventures off on her own into Beekman’s Boardinghouse she finds that her creations are not very appreciated. Sophie is constantly shrieked at for being a spider, despite her best efforts to fix slippers with holes and weave new suits to replace the tattered ones. One day a young woman peers into the yarn basket that Sophie is sleeping in, and miraculously does not disturb her. The young woman is about to have a baby and Sophie is so thrilled at the opportunity to weave her next masterpiece! Ages 4 and up.
