A literary magazine crafted with care for the younger crowd, Spider, part of the Cricket Media publications group, is a delightful smorgasbord of deft and punchy short fiction and non-fiction, "to-be-continued" serials, poems, jokes, brain teasers and puzzles, and how-to crafts. Each page offers a visual treat, too, with varied work by professional artists that includes a cartoon narrative via line illustrations of the magazine's namesake "Spider" and his buggy pals that runs along the bottom of the pages throughout. Reader interaction continues at the engaging website.
