Sandra Markle has done it again, this time taking on the sneakiest of creatures- baby spiders. From the minute a mother spider lays her eggs, she's on patrol to guard against hungry predators hoping to feast on her growing offspring. Then as soon as the spiderlings break out of their egg sacs-sometimes hundreds at a time-they must avoid danger until they are big enough to start spinning their remarkably strong silk into beautifully woven webs to snag their own prey. Amazing, up-close photographs and the most up-to-date research about baby spiders from around the world offers a rare glimpse into these creatures' remarkable beginnings.
