About the Author

Ray J.F. Moore was born in Coventry, England to an Irish family that hails from Galway. He has worked as a stonemason, while his travels and adventures have taken him to places as far-flung as Casablanca and Cuba. He says that he 'just started to write children's stories one boring Sunday morning' at the prompting of his friend, Michelle, who asked him to write a story for her little girl, Amber. The same Michelle provides the illustrations that accompany this book.

MacDaddy Spider lives in a tree and every day, all is as it should be. All day long, he clambers about, fixing his web inside and out.

He wears a wee Tam o' Shanter on his head, to remind him of all the little Scottish spiders who went before. Most days are brightly sunshine but sometimes it showers. He is a busy spider, who wants for nothing except, maybe, socks for his eight black, spindly legs.

Inspired by the nature that surrounds him and his own inventiveness, he soon overcomes his dilemma but not without some helpful advice from a passing Ladybird who, by reminding MacDaddy Spider of his heritage, shows him how to weave the full magic circle of our Creator’s bright light.
