Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
Peter Parker is a high school student, working on a project with magnets. The bell rings and Peter rushes out of the classroom: it is his first day at the Daily Bugle, and he does not want to be late! "Too bad you can't swing on a web like Spider-Man!" says his teacher. Flash Thompson, another student, laughs. "Peter Parker, a Super Hero? He's just a bookworm!" Peter does not like being called names and wishes he could show Flash that he is, in fact, a superhero, but he rushes off to the newspaper, ducking into an alley to change into his costume so he can get there faster. Suddenly the Vulture, "a tricky enemy [who] had wings and could fly," swoops overhead, taunting him. "I'm stealing this bag of jewels!" says the Vulture. "Just try and stop me!" A few pages of action, then Peter uses the magnets he was working on at school to bring the Vulture down to earth, where he is arrested. Peter's late to his first day at work, but the photos he took of the Vulture being arrested save his job. "I'm not a nerd! I'm Spider-Man!" Peter thinks at the end of the story. The simple text might be good for reluctant readers. There is a quick explanation of how Peter got his super powers, so no previous knowledge is necessary. The full-color illustrations cover every page. The fight scene is exciting (if you are a little kid), but not too violent. This book is a fine, safe introduction to Spidey. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
