SPID THE SPIDER
Spid the Spider: Enchanting Books Crawl Under Spotlight, Empowering parents and others to Embrace Reading to their Children
Written by John Eaton, the eighteen volumes in the ‘Spid the Spider’ series shrink young children down to the size of an insect, as they explore with Spid, their new eight-legged friend. Spid lives in a house at the top of the hill; a hardworking arachnid who also enjoys relaxing at his favourite restaurant – Weatherspids! In the newest book, ‘Spid the Spider: Is visiting the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World’, Spid’s escapades get truly global.
United Kingdom – When John Eaton puts his mind to something, he doesn’t do it with half measures. That’s why his ‘Spid the Spider’ series now has a staggering eighteen published volumes, each following an adventure of Spid himself.
From visiting Weatherspids to munch on a Waspburger and French Flies (or perhaps a Stick Insect Salad with a glass of Spider-Cider), the young spidling can also be found relaxing at home while listening to Spid Rap, where he writes and sings songs about his life. Just ask his girlfriend, Bid, how good his singing really is…!
Spid theh Spider is visiting the seven wonders of the ancient world
Each book has three underlying themes, and the seven wonders book has;
- Thinking about others
- Always have hopes and dreams
- Always return to reality
Spid is dreaming of Ancient times, and then fly’s back in time.
Follow Spid on his adventure through time to visit the ancient wonders of the world.
Spid want a holiday, falls asleep and dreams of times gone by, visiting each of the ancient wonders.
“I love being creative, and this series has afforded me the chance to let my imagination and writing run wild,” explains the author. “It’s been so much fun to create an entirely new world, and fill it with a cast of long-legged, creepy-crawly characters that will teach children important morals, while also having loads of fun.”
“One of my particular interests is to inspire shy readers to read to their children. It’s something we don’t see enough of in society, yet it’s vitally important for a strong father-children bond. In my experience, often mothers are the lead readers, and Spid the Spider books seek to enable and empower shy readers to take a more active role. The books are written to appeal to the reader as well as the child. I am turning reading to children on its head, to get shy readers excited about reading the bedtime story. If they also have a talent for rapping, they can head to my website and download official Spid Rap songs. Please send me your videos! I’d love to see Spid’s compositions in action!”

About the Author:
When he left school, John Eaton did not know what, if anything, he should be good at.
He knew English was a strong point but being one of eight children brought up on a council estate, did not look to higher purposes. Accidently getting a job in a psychiatric hospital, he found some logic in continuing down that route of qualification, after all, there was a nursing home where all the nurses lived, and friends, fun and frolics were available on site, which meant for the first time he was free to think about the future.
Qualifying as an RMN, and then an RGN, nursing qualifications that led to him working in Fort Worth Texas, and then in Abu Dhabi. Middle East. Returning to Britain, he soon realised that the system of mental health hospitals was being replaced by care in the community’, and left Tone Vale Hospital to open a small home in Taunton.
Thirty years later, he still treads the board of that type of service, putting his muses to Word applications when his mind flows.
He has a book coming out this year called, ‘Thoughts from a Far Away Place’. with Austin MaCauley
