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

The Green Goblin is looking to make trouble at a big football game. Spidey sees him, but the Green Goblin disguises himself as a football player! Spidey can play the game too, and suits up in a football uniform. The ball is snapped, and Spidey makes a touchdown, then quickly webs up the Green Goblin!

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.
