Review

Peter notices a building on fire and changes to Spider-Man to help out the Firefighters, who cannot reach the upper floors. Given a uniform, Spidey takes another Firefighter with him up the side of the building while also carrying a fire hose. Working to put out the fire and saving two kittens, Spider-Man helps save the day!

In General...

A nice set of childrens books, each one about 12 pages long, introducing your child to some real-life heroes. 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...

I liked the idea that Spider-Man helped out, and didn't overshadow the real heroes. Four Webs on this set.
