Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this spectacular pop-up extravaganza, Spider-Man faces down the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Electro, and five other fiendish adversaries. Superheroes-in-training will gasp at the four action gatefolds and dynamic foiled pop-ups which combine to render a story of unforgettable daring and heroism.
Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
No wonder they call these comic books! This one is a pop-up of eight double-page spreads with super heroes popping up in the middle of each of them, and they are not all good guys, either! The chief requirement for becoming a superhero seems to be falling victim to some absurd accident that bestows super powers upon otherwise regular guys. Spider-man himself was bitten by a radioactive spider giving him the jumping power of a spider with its sticky web throwing capability, along with super strength per net weight and the ability to climb right up the sides of tall buildings. The Sandman, my personal favorite, happened to be crawling through a tunnel under an atomic energy plant when an unexpected nuclear accident turned him to loosely packed sand. This book, a "true-believers retro character collection," reviews some of the escapades of Spidey (as he is known to his friends) beginning in 1963 when he began working his way through hair-raising adventures against evil. Against Vulture, for instance, he was dropped to his doom into a water tower with no clue as to how he got out—"After a narrow escape from the water tower, Spidey makes sure he is better prepared for their next meeting." Enhanced with shining metallic colors and a lot of "Wow!" "Blang!" "Whoom!" this will be an entertaining selection for comic book lovers.
School Library Journal

Gr 3 & Up - The first in a series spotlighting Marvel superheroes, this trapezoid-shaped offering combines comic-book excerpts with action-packed pop-ups to introduce the web-slinging wonder. Four foldout comic-strip sections spread throughout the book relate Peter Parker's story: the bookish teen's fateful encounter with a radioactive spider; his testing of his new powers at a wrestling match and donning of the familiar costume; the murder of his beloved Uncle Ben; and his capture of the perpetrator and transformation from self-absorbed media star to justice-serving hero. Colorful 3-D sculptures leap out at readers with every turn of the page as they meet seven of Spider-Man's most ferocious foes, including the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, and the Vulture. These spreads feature a storyboard retelling of how each villain gained his superhuman abilities; a slide-out tab listing his vital statistics, skills, weapons, and cool gadgets; and, in most cases, an encounter between the bad guy and Spidey. Additional pull-out files highlight other key characters. The pop-up images, many embellished with bright metallic paper, retain the nostalgic appeal of the retro comic-book art while injecting an element of movement and excitement. After browsing this title, youngsters will be fully initiated into Spider-Man lore and ready to take on the Marvel classics.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

    Spider-Man is not all that's amazing in this Retro Character Collection from Candlewick Press - the pop-ups are awesome. Measuring a generous 8' by 10' the pages seem to fly as metallic pop-outs spring up to follow the transformation of the reticent Peter Parker to Spider-Man, a superhero possessing great powers. All of the pop-ups are based on original Marvel comic book excerpts, which collectors will find especially appealing. Since first introduced in 1962 Spider-Man has become one of the most popular superheroes, eventually appearing on the big screen and breaking box office records. With this pop-up book readers will find our hero battling his worst enemies from Doctor Octopus to The Sandman. Also included are slide-out character fact files holding everything you wanted to know about the young man both blessed and cursed by a bite from an irradiated spider. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke
