Miss Spider is respectful towards the others and very kind to James because of the kindness he gave her. She is brave but also tough and feisty and initially preferred to be alone, but later warms up.
Mr. Centipede often tries her patience but she soon falls in love with him.
James and the Giant Peach Edit
She is first seen as a normal sized spider in James' window and he introduces himself to her and expresses his desire to go to New York and shows her a special candle his parents gave him. The next morning, Spiker and Sponge spot her, but James saves her, carries her outside, and tells her to leave. That night, James climbs inside the peach, having been transformed and Miss Spider, who, along with the others, has been magically transformed into a giant, assures him that no one will hurt him, although he does not recognize her. During the time of their journey to New York City, she aids in dangerous situations and while doing so, gets James to realize that she is the spider he saved and starts a romantic relationship with Centipede. Although she and the others are separated from James following an attack from The Rhino, they reunite with him and help him in the capture of Spiker and Sponge, who had journeyed to New York to get James and the peach back. She then lives in Central Park with James and the others, and becomes the owner of 'Spider Club'.
