Spider Bite: Extreme Adventures




'My little brother lay in the bottom of the basket with his head slimed sideways, I took a closer look. Jordan's face was blue . . . '

When Sam Fox's twin brothers, Harry and Jordan, are carried off in a runaway hot-air balloon, Sam tries to save them – only to end up trapped himself! What starts as a joy-ride turns into a life-and-death struggle when Jordan is bitten by a funnel-web spider. Will Sam be able to land the balloon in time to save his brother?
