This is a retelling of an old poem. The innocent fly is invited to dine with the spider. She knows of his evil ways but can't help falling for his flattery. There are wonderful black and white illustrations that add to the creepy noir feel of the story. There are lots of details in the illustrations as well, look for all the bug parts that have been used as household accessories: butterfly wing curtains, and a dearly departed bug candle holder. The ghostly insects try to warn her, but does she listen? No! Warning: This story does not have a happy ending! Staff picks 2007
