The Official Spider Test.


What do you do when you see a spider?

a. Lay on a BIG spidey smoocheroo.

b. Smile, but back away slowly.

c. Grab the closest object, wind up, and let it fly.

d. Run away screaming.
 

If you chose b, c, or d, then this book is for you! (If you chose a, you might be crazy.)
 

I’m Trying to Love Spiders will help you see these amazing arachnids in a whole new light, from their awesomely excessive eight eyes, to the seventy-five pounds of bugs a spider can eat in a single year! And you’re sure to feel better knowing you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than being fatally bit by a spider. Comforting, right? No? Either way, there’s heaps more information in here to help you forget your fears . . . or at least laugh a lot!

About the author

Bethany bARTon was drawing monsters for her other picture books (This Monster Needs A Haircut, This Monster Cannot Wait) when a spider crawled across the page and demanded her attention. Since she couldn’t smash Mr. Spider into her artwork, she decided to try and love him. It wasn’t easy (RIP Mr. Spider) but in the process, this book was born. 
 

When she isn’t writing or illustrating books about awesome and icky things, Bethany spends her days decorating sets and painting miniatures for film/TV. Bethany lives in Los Angeles with her rad husband, their adorable son, and an outrageous number of garden spiders she won’t let anybody smash. (Well... unless they’re really big.)

Through her pranks, sketches, and videos about everyday life, Jenn has become a mouthpiece for millennials and one of YouTube's fastest rising stars! Jenn McAllister, better known as JennxPenn, has been obsessed with making videos since she found her parents video camera at the age of eight. A shy child, Jenn turned to film because, unlike with life, you can always have a do-over. Really Professional Internet Person offers both an insider's guide to building a successful YouTube channel and an intimate portrait of the surreality of insta-fame and the harsh reality of high school. Brimming with honesty, heart and Jenn's patented sense of humor, Really Professional Internet Person features top ten lists, photos, screenshots, social media posts and never-before-posted stories chronicling Jenn's journey from an anxious middle-schooler just trying to fit in, to a YouTube sensation unafraid to stand out. About the Author Jenn McAllister, better known as JennXPenn to her fans, has gained notoriety over the last six years on YouTube and successfully translated her following into working with top brands like Brandy Melville, Old Navy and Mattel. Last year, she served as the official Social Correspondent of Goldfish at the 2014 Jingle Ball, as well as hosted a North American tour for musician, Tyler Ward. In addition, she recently wrapped her first feature, Bad Night, which she stars alongside Casey Wilson, Adam Pally and Matt Walsh. Previously, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for “Best Web Star: Comedy” and she recently participated in an online PSA for Voter Registration Day for Ourtime.org which was featured in Vanity Fair.
