Book Description:​

It’s Easter time. Spid is excited about chocolate eggs and a very special cake – until he notices that carrots and lettuces are vanishing from his vegetable patch. How could they just disappear? Is there a vegetable thief at work? As he investigates, Spid must be as cleverley as Cleverley Evaleigh to solve the mystery. Features 2 songs: ‘We’re Sorry’ and ‘Wabbit’. The book includes QR codes that take readers to musical versions of the song. You can also find music videos of the songs at https://spidthespider.com and https://www.youtube.com/spidthespider. Spid is a lowly spider, who wants to better himself, write songs, and marry his girlfriend Bid, though he is prone to hilarious mishaps mostly of his own making. He is hard-working, cool, and a role model for young children. As well as encouraging children to read and love books, Spid’s adventures also teach valuable life lessons, including determination and what psychologists call a ‘growth mindset’ (desire to better oneself and succeed), the importance of friendship, and sustainability. With very creative prose, Spid’s adventures are fun for parents, and teachers to read to, and with, their children. They present lots of opportunities to invest dramatic licence thus helping adults and children interact and engage. The humour works at multiple levels from silly and slapstick to more sophisticated wordplay and concepts. Thus, children will discover more and enjoy reading the stories multiple times.

His first book is a collection of poems, or what he calls ‘proetry’, ‘Thoughts from a Faraway Place’, Austin Macauley (2021).
