The Tarantula From The Transvaal That Visited Jack’s Beanstalk

The tarantula from the Transvaal, who came to stay in Jack’s beanstalk shook the leaves of the beanstalk when he started to walk. He was the spidery – est creature that had ever climbed up a wall. In fact, he span so many cobwebs that he could hardly be seen at all. He left on the chairs, tarantula hairs, and almost got sat on – because nobody cares. Munching flies with a tarantula appetite, he saw a grasshopper and took a big bite. He devoured three dragonfly before settling down for the night. In the Transvaal, of beanstalks, there aren’t very many, nor a few money spiders (and they don’t have a penny !). The tarantula from the Transvaal, slipped on a raindrop and started to fall – that’s when he really started to have a ball ! Though he didn’t have any pegs, the tarantula’s eight legs, were great when he was crawling on the washing line … it helped him abseil down Jack’s beanstalk and get to the bottom on time !
