Movie tie-in books like this are like chewing gum. They lose their flavor quickly.
My sons, ages 6 and 4, are die-hard Spider-man fans. However, there aren't many superhero books my sons can read and enjoy that are age appropriate. Most comic books are written for teenage and adult audiences. And I don't let my sons watch the PG or PG-13 rated superhero movies (Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four).
I bought this book hoping it would feed their interest in an age-appropriate format. I now wish I had my money back.
The book is a narrative not a story. The author, Harry Lime, introduces us to Spider-Man, Sandman, Venom and the New Goblin but the characters do not interact.
Steven Gordon's illustrations are horrible. With so many comic book artists available I can't understand why the book looks like an insurance pamphlet.
Here's a list of Spider-Man books I recommend instead:
Spider-Man: The Amazing Story (Level 1 Beginning to Read)
Spider-Man's Worst Enemies (Level 2 Beginning to Read Alone)
The Story of Spider-Man (Level 4: Proficient Reader)
Spider-Man's Amazing Powers (Level 4: Proficient Reader)
