Winner of a Parent’s Choice Award, this much loved nursery rhyme benefits from the  collaboration between author/illustrators Rebecca Emberley and her father, Caldecott award winner Ed Emberley. The Emberleys have created 10 books together, and like their previous work, "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" virtually explodes with riotus color! They chose to stay true to the original rhyme, while giving the spider their own special touch. Whether it's a child's first experience with this timeless classic, or the 100th, the Emberleys' version is sure to please.

Ed Emberley is an Caldecott award-winning, beloved author and illustrator of children's books. Wonderful, whimsical, and humorous, he is best known for encouraging a generation of children to take the drawing process step by step. He shies away from calling himself an artist and instead likes to say "he draws pictures for a living". Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ed attended Massachusetts College of Art where he met his wife, Barbara. His book One Wide River won the Caldecott honor in 1967, followed by the Caldecott award for "Drummer Hoff" in 1968. In the 1970s he published a series of much loved How To Draw books featuring his unique drawing alphabet. It has been said that Ed Emberley can teach anyone to draw. These books are still in use today as much as they were when first published. Ed has gone on to publish more than 100 books for children, most recently a series of revisited fables and fairy tales with his daughter Rebecca. Mr. Emberley still lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara, on the Ipswich River.
