Lox, the gate-keeper of the spider kingdom under the hedge in Ben’s garden, asks Ben for help again. The Spider Wizard needs three special ingredients before the next full moon to make a magic potion to cure the Spider Prince, but can Ben find them in time? He meets some unusual creatures on his quest who are not all as scary as they first seem. Ben wants to tell his best friend Jess but she’d rather spend time with the new girl in school, so he asks his gran instead. They look for clues on the computer and in the library, but how much does Gran really know, and will she tell Ben a secret that will keep him safe from Spindra, the evil sister of the Spider Queen?
Ben and the Spider Prince is available at all good bookshops, or online at Amazon.
“The Spider Prince is a wonderful sequel full of adventure and magic. A story about loyalty and friendship that will totally capture your child’s heart.”
Ben wanted to try out the magic rhyme so much but he knew he’d have to wait until Gran was ready to pass over the secret of how to use it. He went into the kitchen and pulled on his coat and his boots. His head was bursting with all the things his gran had told him. He just couldn’t wait for tomorrow!
Ben took a deep breath then said the rhyme and did the actions. He realised that the grass was now taller than him. He’d done it! He’d made the rhyme work.
