Very different to the usual typical Julia Donaldson books. I wasn't expecting for it not to be written in rhyme, so it didn't flow as easily. But I loved it all the same! A different approach to teaching children numbers, and my five year old who absolutely loves counting at the moment loved it! My two year old who loves football also enjoyed it as it is based around spiders loving to play football together! It was nice to see Julia Donaldson take on a different way to tell a story! Definitely a recommended read!
