A fun-read aloud picture book about a spider who loves to weave amazing artistic webs, only to wake up one day to discover he's missing a leg. Is he still a spider if he only has seven legs? His question is answered as his search for his missing leg takes readers on an adventure that is sure to bring a smile even to those wary of spiders.

Frank loves being a spider, especially the part that involves having eight glorious legs. But one morning Frank wakes up missing a leg. One of his friends exclaims, "I barely recognize him!" Another friend asks, "Are you still a spider, Frank?" Is he still a spider? Frank doesn't know. A funny and heartfelt quest filled with surprises ensues as Frank searches for his leg and the answer to his identity.
