I can’t think of a more delightfully random character. Think about it. A spider. With seven legs. That are actually mung bean sprouts. In Lee Ju-Lyn’s off-kilter universe it all makes perfect sense. If you know what’s good for you, it should in yours, too.
— Mayo Martin (2015)

The Spider with Seven Tau-geh Legs is about a spider who has beansprouts for her legs. Through the seemingly simple telling of her past, hobbies, likes and dislikes, her personality and thoughts are revealed to the readers.

This picture book was borne of an creative collaboration with another Singaporean artist, Levene Wong. Developing from a point of departure from a flash fiction story, the artists explored each other's creative processes and philosophies, to develop the story to its full potential as well as to grow as artists.
