About the Book

Spider’s Treasure Box of Stories is a collection of stories—myths, fables, parables, and original work by Jamieson, collected over several decades and have been well loved by children. They come close to the old “cautionary tales.”

The book is aimed at all those who love stories and would like to love spiders and other critters of the garden and shed. It will provide entertainment and spark imaginative ideas. His latest book is A Good Way to Go, about some of the mental health and ethical issues around life and death. Adults can use the collection for themselves and in educational situations, especially where ethical teaching is part of the intention.

His illustrations make the characters come alive. This book has all the hallmarks of Jamieson‘s creativity both in writing and philosophy, art and illustrating. It challenges the reader to think about smaller things in life.
