Review

Some kids are playing a video game when all of a sudden the power goes out. Stepping outside, the kids run into Spider-Man who is looking for Electro, he must have been the one who stole the power! Electro stands atop a power transformer, can Spider-Man stop him? Of course he does, Electro get webbed up tight thanks to Spider-Man's special helpers.

In General...

Another fine set of books, these include children as crucial parts of the story, letting you know that kids can be heroes too. While these books are very short, they are designed that way, as small children wont be able to grasp a complex storyline or have the patience for a long story. Great for toddlers and beginning readers.

Overall Rating...

Perhaps a bit on the large side for tiny hands, this set nonetheless should be fun for kids to read. Four Webs.
