Enter the Sports series, where Spidey gets to try his hand at Baseball, Basketball, Football, and Soccer. These books are only slighty different in that they have some tabs on the side, with a small picture that is more or less the focus of the current page.

All four childrens books come as a complete set. Other sets include the 'Special Helpers Series', the 'Neighborhood Heroes Series', and the 'Search Series'.

Story Details

A group of kids ask Spidey if he would like to join in the baseball game. Sure enough, Spidey changes into a baseball uniform and steps up to the plate. WHACK! Spidey hits the ball so hard its heading out of the park! Quickly firing a web-line, Spidey catches the ball. The kids are mighty impressed with Spider-Man's baseball skills.

General Comments

This set of books is all about having fun. While these particular illustrations seem to depict Spidey small, almost like a kid, it doesn't really detract from the general point of the story. 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

Another four webs for some well done childrens books.
