Everywhere the baby spider goes, he always hears a very strange noise: “Eeek!” He hears it when he goes into a room, when he rides in a car, when he jumps up and down the stairs, and even when he’s playing at the park! It scares him so much that he always runs away and hides until it sounds safe again. What could that strange noise mean? He asks his friends, the grasshopper, the ladybug, and the roly-poly, if they’ve ever heard that noise, but they never have. Together the four little friends try to figure out exactly what “Eeek” means so that the baby spider will know why the sound follows him everywhere. In this children’s story, four young insect friends set out to find out why one strange and loud noise always happens when the baby spider is around.
