Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

Cecile wandered the forest, not knowing who she was or where she came from. A tiny spider sent Cecile to a castle. A horrible spider tried to catch her in a web, but Cecile ran bravely onward. She came upon a sweet lady named Emma that gave her food and told her she was the Princess of Belamor. An evil spider queen had stolen the castle and the people from Cecile. The queen was trying to capture Cecile because only she could open the door to the Treasury.

"Cecile and the Spider Queen" is a delightful story. This entertaining story is filled with enchantment, adventure and deception. The ending of this story makes it very special for all little girls who want to be a princess. This book will stay in my library so that my granddaughters and I can share the delightful tale over and over again.
