The Very Busy Spider. Eric Carle's most famous book is, of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. In the mid 1960s, Carle decided to give up a successful career in advertising to become an illustrator and graphic designer. His first published work appeared in a cookery book. Soon afterwards, children's book author Bill Martin asked him to illustrate the manuscript of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? The resulting book was an instant hit.

the hardcover version, is small, very small. This is not very clear in the description, was expecting a regular size hardcover book. The book is 3" tall x 3 1/2" wide. A tiny book, very cute story. Nothing against the story. That I love. And I plan on buying this in a different format. Luckily Amazon.com rocks and a refund was given instantly without shipping this back (5 stars to Amazon). Recommend the board book or paperback And not the HARDCOVER the size of a spider version. 1 star to the hardcover tiny book, 5 starts to amazon and 5 stars to the story itself.

I am really disappointed in this book. I guess I didn't read closely enough to see that there's no texture to the spider's web, which is half the joy of this wonderful book. As a child I loved running my fingers over the spider's web as she slowly constructed it. With this book, my son can't do that. Incredibly disappointed.

I like Eric Carle books and have several of them. This is a nice book; however I don't like how big the flaps are. They are almost the whole page in size, which makes it hard for my 2 1/2 year old daughter to put back correctly on the page without bending them.

Like a lot of people, I ordered this directly from Amazon, figuring it'd be a regular sized book, or at the very least, about the same size as the board book version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Usually Amazon will say in the item title what version the book is, like board book, hardcover, etc. Seeing as how The Very Busy Spider here was the same price as the board book of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I figured it'd be a board book too. Nope! Granted, the product details do tell you the measurements of the book, but shouldn't they have the decency to say this is a miniature book in the title too? Heck, why order this when you can get the paperback version for the same price through Amazon's Used & New?

Either way, this is a fairly cute book, though I don't think it's anywhere near as memorable as Eric Carle's other books like the Caterpillar, Cricket, Ladybug and Firefly books. It's about a [very busy] spider who lands on the scene one day, and just starts to spin its web. Many other animals come over and invite the spider to come with them and have fun, but the spider doesn't reply- it's too busy spinning its web. Finally a rooster asks the spider if it wants to come and chase flies, and by this point, the web's done. The spider doesn't need to reply to the rooster, because after it asks, a fly lands in the web. Story over.

There's no real message or moral here that I can figure out, not that it's necessary in order to enjoy the story or anything, but where The Grouchy Ladybug is about bullying and being put in your place, all The Very Busy Spider is is a spider ignoring offers by other animals because it wants to complete its web. Yeah, there could be the message of how important it is to stay focused and finish the job, but I'm sure there are a lot of parents out there who'd whine about the spider having bad manners or something. The art style is done in the standard Carle fashion, always a treat, and the spider's web is done in a special way on the paper so that it's risen from the page a bit and 'bumpy'.

I give the book on its own 3.5 stars, but this dinky version: a tiny hardcover book with regular paper pages, not being billed as that in the title and throwing off many people, reduces the score a bit. Sure it could be a good choice to take on trips, but most kids will enjoy the illustrations better if the pages are bigger. Unless your child specifies that they want THIS version, go with the old paperback or hardcovers instead.

First off - this is not the normal sized book! When I purchased the headline was not clear and I didn't read thoroughly, so I was surprised when it arrived and it was small.

I didn't send it back though - for the price it is still a good deal and I needed a copy of it to read to my son as we move through the Eric Carle books. He loves the little size and it is a good book to tuck into my purse for when I need a distraction while we're out.

Bought it for my granddaughter and her father just loved it. One of my daughters saw it and said she is going to get it for her class of 4-year-olds.
I think it is one of the neatest children's book I have ever read!

I am so disappointed in this book. It is very deceiving. I bought this book for my grandson for part of a kindergarten gift. He loves this book when he gets it from the library. This one is nothing like that one. It’s much smaller and there is no texture. Beware you are not getting what you think your getting!! :-(
My 4yo and I are big fan of Eric Carle and we love this book, but the ‘lift-the-flap’ is a total disappointment. The ‘flap’ is almost the same size as the page so it’s just like flipping another page, making the book with lots of blank space.
