Sophie is no ordinary house spider. She’s an artist and takes great pride in her work. Every web she spins is more wonderous than the one before. But the guests at Beekman’s Boardinghouse don’t like spiders. Everywhere Sophie goes guests scream and shoo her away. No one there wants anything to do with Sophie and her magnificent creations – no one except the young woman up on the third floor who is busy ‘weaving’ something herself; and when she runs out of yarn, Sophie knows that the time has finally come to create the masterpiece of a lifetime.
