Crowstarving was the ideal job for Spider - he was on his own - yet never alone, for all around him were animals of one sort or another. Discovered as a foundling in a lambing pen, Spider Sparrow grows up surrounded by animals. From sheep and horses to wild otters and foxes, Spider loves them all, even the crows must scare away the newly sown wheat. Amazingly, every animal who meets Spider implicitly trusts the young boy.

One of Dick King-Smith’s last books, The Roundhill is a quaint yet mysterious story about a fourteen year old boy, Evan, who makes an unusual friendship. My daughters grew up on King-Smith’s stories, especially the Sophie series (Sophie Hits Six, Sophie Is Seven) which came out just ahead of their ages and described a little tomboy who loves animals and wanted to be a lady farmer. King-Smith could have done so much with that, and it just fell flat! Also, I was interested to see where he went with the whole atheism thing, and I started out thinking that it was fascinating how the Roundhill I was expecting so much out of this little book, and I ended up being so disappointed.
