Praise for The Continuing Adventures of Alice Spider
“Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety” – these words weren’t first written for Alice Spider, but they should have been. She is a heroine for our times – a multitasker of the human spirit and a joy in all her manifestations. Cherish her, and take her to your hearths."
—Mary Cresswell, author of Trace Fossils
