Meet Eleanor. Though she is prized by her boss, Minerva, above all the girls who work in the courtier’s factory, no one knows why. It all began when Minerva discovered Eleanor has a secret—one involving her little eight-legged friends. Minerva will not stop until she unravels the mystery of Eleanor’s magic. Trapped, Eleanor is determined not to let her secret fall into the wrong hands. With some help from her friends, soon, Minerva, the Royals, and all the kingdom will learn that Eleanor has another trick up her sleeve—one that just might grant her a chance at escape.
Spiderella: The Girl Who Spoke with Spiders is an enchanted tale that weaves together the fairy tale plot of Cinderella and the myth of Arachne. The collaboration bears stylistic and genre resemblances to Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake, and Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince. Readers will join Eleanor on her adventures as she outwits the malevolent Minerva, rescues a reluctant Prince, and takes flight in a hot air balloon of her own making. This sets up the plot of Book Two, as Eleanor and the Prince begin a journey across the sea—in search of the girl's father.
