The Spider King's Daughter is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet set against the backdrop of a changing Lagos, a city torn between tradition and modernity, corruption and truth, love and family loyalty. Seventeen-year-old Abike Johnson is the favourite child of her wealthy father. She lives in a sprawling mansion in Lagos, protected by armed guards and ferried everywhere in a huge black jeep. But being her father's favourite comes with uncomfortable duties, and she is often lonely behind the high walls.

This brings back memories of when I was a child and I wanted my daughter to experience the many pleasures Enid Blyton books bring. She loves the audio and it has encouraged her to start reading for pleasure. Very pleased. The only thing with this audio is it is read like a theatre play so misses some descriptive words, however my daughter loves the style as she loves play acting.
