Nic Bishop Spiders
by Nic Bishop

Scientist Nic Bishop loves spiders! He goes on expeditions in search of them! He even raises them at home! Now he is sharing what he has seen and learned from his eight-legged friends in a book he wrote!

Do you know how which spider is the biggest?
What can all spiders do that insects cannot do?
Do you think any spiders have wings?
How many parts does a spider's body have?
If you were a spider, how would you eat your prey?

Nic Bishop will tell you answers to these and other questions you might have about spiders. He answers you in his photographs and his story!
