The Tarantula in my Purse


Summer Holiday Online Book Club

All ages.

Six daily clubs.

18th – 23rd July

6.30 pm – 7.30 pm



Summer Holiday Actor-led online book club for children of all ages.

Imagine living with a skunk in your cupboard, a bat in your fridge, and a tarantula in your purse! In this hilarious autobiographical account, Newberry medal-winning author and acclaimed naturalist, Jean Craighead George describes her adventures in a house full of wild animals and wild animal enthusiast children.

Reminiscent of a previous book club choice, My Family and Other Animals, these short, humorous and well-told vignettes are the perfect listen for summer evenings. Hugely entertaining.
