Happy Birthday Spider McDrew Paperback
by Alan Durant
Illustrated by Philip Hopman
A second title about this lovable character who never quite manages to keep up with his classmates.
Schools stories with the essential feel-good factor.
Spider is always saying and doing the wrong thing: he forgets the punchlines to his own jokes; he daydreams in class; he always has odd socks on; and he even gets into a muddle over his party invitations.
He may be a hopeless case, but is the most lovable of children and usually turns out to be the hero.
Three stories in one book: in the first, Spider's class visits a doughnut factory but instead of a doughnut, Spider decides to make a doughnut man.
In the second story, Spider's class as doing a project on the USA.
Everyone is supposed to come to schools dressed as a cowboy, but Spider decides to be Geronimo.
In the third story, it's Spider's birthday and he makes and gives out invitations - but for the wrong day!
