Creepy-crawly reptiles and amphibians abound in the September issue of SPIDER! Solve a mystery, jump around like a frog in a tuxedo, bake some orange brownies, and try to keep your feet dry. Guess the mystery animals with help from Mickey Wright’s clever haiku, and learn how to dust for fingerprints like a real detective. There are plenty of things to make and try this month, from Ophelia’s orange brownies to fearsome snake finger puppets, and TWO wacky weddings to attend! And what exactly rhymes with orange? Find out in these imaginative stories, poems, and activities!
