In this book, the first in the series, a puppy called Streak is dognapped (?) and two spiders help in trying to rescue him once they spot a little twolegs (a girl) crying about. The puppy belongs to a butcher called Mr Penfold (Dangermouse? Who didn't love that cartoon?) And so another mystery happens in Chichester. It's another fun, mysterious novel by Christopher Joyce with some cute characters and innovative ideas such as how the animals speak to each other - reminds me of my slugs, though my slugs speak rather naturally and don't 'spink'. I would highly recommend it for your young slugs.
