Egielski goes way beyond the waterspout with this charming pop-up adaptation of the familiar nursery rhyme, creating a cozy world of buildings made from tin cans, saltshakers, and teapots, populated by a cast of well-dressed urban insects. Readers can watch the spider—a boy in many-legged overalls, yellow turtleneck, and red cap—disappear up the waterspout, and when the rain washes the spider out, children get a gutter-level view, with the water and spider tumbling outward from the page. Even readers who know this brief rhyme by heart will happily lose themselves in the spider's friendly hometown. Ages 3–6. (Sept.)
