Launching today is our latest nonfiction picture book for kids. Nefertiti, the Spidernaut is the story of a Johnson jumping spider who went to the International Space Station for 100 days. It’s a story of change: through the dark and cold, in spite of being weightless and isolated, this amazing spider adapted and learned to hunt. She survived to return to Earth, where she had to re-adapt to Earth’s gravity. Nefertiti’s story of survival inspires hope that we, too, can adapt to a changing world.
