This book is a poem written in the 19th century that was recently illustrated, and tells the story of a spider trying to lure a fly into his trap. This book does really well with rhyming and could be a useful tool to teach children about rhyming words. This book would be appropriate for early to intermediate readers. ( )

This book was a bit scary if I was a younger reader. The pictures were all black and white, the character was creepy looking, and in the end was a bit scary. ( )

Absolutely brilliant. Certainly a terrifying read for the very young, but a fantastic rhyming story with stunning illustrations. Truly a classic and one of my all-time favorite picture books. ( )

A spider asked a fly to come up to his parlor and the fly said no knowing that the others that have gone up to the spider's parlor have never returned. The spider kept trying to convince the fly that his parlor was safe by offering the fly a bed to sleep, a pantry to feast from, and a mirror to look in. However, the fly refused all of these things because of the rumors of the spider's past victims. As the spider continuously flattered the fly, the fly eventually trusted the spider and the spider took the fly up to his parlor where she would never return. The story of the spider and the fly teaches children an extremely important life lesson: do not trust everyone, no matter how flattering they may seem. ( )

Janice M. Del Negro (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, November 2002 (Vol. 56, No. 3))
Oh, the poor inexperienced country fly! What chance does she have against the suave maneuverings of an arachnid seducer? Why, none at all, despite the attempted ghostly warnings of the Spider’s previous meals. DiTerlizzi’s reimagining of Howitt’s nineteenth-century cautionary poem is an illustrative tour de force, a stylistic homage to Gorey, Rackham, and Addams; the black-and-white illustrations have a junior-high-appealing slickness yet remarkable depth and detail, from border ornamentation to ironic visual touches. A Gothic dollhouse within the dusty attic of a Gothic mansion makes a clever scene for the Spider’s dastardly doings, and the depiction of the characters is imaginative as well. The oily-haired, mustachioed Spider (sort of a combination of Clark Gable and Peter Lorre) is the archetypal villain, a picture of sartorial splendor who changes costume from satin smoking jacket to tuxedo to great coat and top hat. The flapper fly has big innocent eyes, gauzy wings, and, ultimately, a too trusting demeanor: in the end she takes her place alongside Spider’s other ghostly victims. A concluding missive from Spider himself warns against expecting carnivores to go against their nature; brief bios of author Howitt and illustrator DiTerlizzi are appended. Masterful drafting and artful composition combine in this spookily sophisticated picture book that offers a macabrely funny look at trusting even the most persuasive of strangers. Review Code: R -- Recommended. (c) Copyright 2002, The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. 2002, Simon, 36p, $16.95. Grades 4-7.

Kirkus (Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2002 (Vol. 70, No. 13))
Will you walk into my parlor?' / said the Spider to the Fly." Howitt's 1829 cautionary poem is realized here in full cinematic fashion. Delightfully ghoulish full-bleed black-and-white spreads are rendered in gouache and pencil, and reproduced in silver-and-black duotone, resulting in images that recall the slightly fuzzy-edged figures from old black-and-white horror movies. The typeface and occasional framed text pages heighten this effect by evoking silent-movie titles. The setting is a dustily gothic attic in which DiTerlizzi's (Alien and Possum: Friends No Matter What, p. 494, etc.) "camera" never rests, zooming in, out, up, and down in a dazzling series of perspectives as a top-hatted and bespatted spider romances a naïve flapper fly. Her protestations in the face of his overtures grow ever weaker, and despite the warnings of the ghostly figures of past victims (one brandishes a knife and fork while another points urgently at The Joy of Cooking Bugs), she goes to her inevitable doom. The illustrations embrace the primness of the poem-the wide-eyed fly is the very picture of a bygone innocence-but introduce a wealth of detail that adds a thick layer of humor. Aside from the aforementioned ghosts, evidence of the spider's predilections abounds: in his parlor, he relaxes with his feet up on a very dead ladybug stool with X's for eyes. A tongue-in-cheek "letter" from the spider follows the poem, in which he exhorts readers to "be advised that spiders are not the only hunters and bugs are not the only victims." This cautionary intrusion serves to explicate the metaphor for concretely minded readers, but the message is not likely to diminish their pleasure in the grisly doings one bit. 2002, Simon & Schuster, $16.95. Category: Picture book. Ages 5 to 9. Starred Review

So what does all this talk of spiders and traps have to do with you? Be warned, little dears, and know that spiders are not the only hunters and bugs are not the only victims.
Unfortunately, as long as there's dishonesty in the world, there will be people ready to lay traps for us. We must learn to recognize them and guard against their wiles. Not everyone who talks sweetly offers sweets. (William Bennett's introduction to the poem in the Moral Compass)
