This story follows siblings Arthur and Myrtle as they flee their spaceship home after it’s attacked by giant white spiders. In this version of Victorian England, 1850, space travel is common, and the solar system is full of interesting life forms. Art and Myrtle team up with the space pirate Jack Havock to defeat the spiders and their plot to dominate the galaxy. Full of brilliant imagery and British dry humor, this is a fantastic read for all ages.
