"I am not loved at all. And yet I do nothing but good. All day long I catch flies and mosquitoes in my webs. I am a decent person."
"I am not loved at all. And yet I do nothing but good. All day long I catch flies and mosquitoes in my webs. I am a decent person." - Miss Spider, in James and the Giant Peach
Poor old Miss Spider. She's such a helpful creature, and yet as she tells James in Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, spiders just aren't treated right. She even has to witness her poor old father being flushed down the plug-hole by James's horrible Aunt Sponge.
She's a good friend to James, though, and - along with the Silkworm - it is her incredible thread that helps get them out of a sticky situation aboard the Peach.
In the 1996 animated film adaptation of James and the Giant Peach, Miss Spider was voiced by Susan Sarandon.
It is very unfair the way we Spiders are treated...
