(12),1-132. 8vo, black cloth spine with grey paper covered boards, pressed spiderweb decoration to front, metallic red lettering to spine. "Seven baby Siberian snow spiders, frozen in a glacier during the Ice Age, defrost in the present time -- and are lost en route to Harvard for analysis. Creeping through the Vermont woods, the arachnids observe a girls' club, the Tattletales, on a campout. Each spider imprints on one of the seven club members. It's love at first sight! When Pearl Hotchkiss, the only non-club member in Miss Earth's class, catches one of the spiders for show-and-tell, its alarmed siblings plotits rescue. One by one, they leave to seek their sibling -- and to look fo r a special Tattletale. But as the spiders get bigger, they get meaner. When their now-murderous intentions disrupt the school Halloween pageant, it'sup to the Tattletales -- and the rival boys' club, the Copycats -- to save their teacher, and their class, from disaster." - from the dust jacket.
