Just Itzy by Lana Krumwiede

JustItzyA spider on a quest to drop the “Bitzy” and become “just Itzy” runs up against some challenges—and a few familiar nursery-rhyme characters.

New York Times: “Krumwiede and Pizzoli have taken the old spider finger-song and put it on steroids. The result is a wacky, hip story about gaining independence.”

Kirkus: “combines nursery rhymes and folk songs about spiders with a first-day-of-school story about not giving up offers a little something for everyone. . . . Spidery good fun with a can-do message!”

School Library Journal: “Savvy readers will want to tap their prior knowledge of spiders from stories of Miss Muffet, the Old Lady who swallowed a fly, and a harrowing tale of a waterspout climb.”
