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

Spidey is watching some local school kids practice hoops for an upcoming game later on the evening. One of them asks Spider-Man if he will practice with them. Spidey get a uniform on and slam dunks the ball! The kids congratulate his moves, then Spidey swings off, going back to his super hero business.

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.
